Recording Arts

Bachelor of Science
Degree Overview

If you’re dreaming of pursuing a career in recording, you’re in good company. Full Sail began as a recording school back in 1979, and in the years since, has built extensively upon its foundational curriculum. Today, the Recording Arts bachelor of science program provides not only the skills needed to capture an artist’s sound, but also a comprehensive understanding of techniques used throughout the audio industry. From live music production to audio postproduction for film, television, and video games, you’ll cover a wide array of procedures and applications – all while working with the same gear found in professional studios.
