The degree in music industry offers the highly motivated and musically talented student a program of study that combines mastery of the art form with career preparation. Two concentrations are offered - Music Industry Business and Music Industry Technology - providing hands-on experience and a strong academic foundation in relevant areas of this rapidly changing industry. The music industry curriculum is divided into four areas which are combined with cooperative experience: general education, music core, music industry core, and concentration requirements. In an industry where the process of career building often begins with a few key contacts, the cooperative education program provides Drexel students the opportunity to meet industry professionals and network. The program prepares students for careers in the music industry in such diverse positions as recording engineer, music producer, sound designer, music lawyer, business manager or music publisher. The co-op experience during the sophomore and junior year summer terms involve full-time career-related employment, during which students gain valuable insight into how the entertainment industry works. The Recording Arts and Music Production (RAMP) concentration focuses on the techniques and technologies of music and audio production. As well as providing the technology-oriented student with the necessary skills to perform as an audio engineer or record producer, the concentration teaches students a full range of industry functions including post-production audio, live sound engineering, and music and audio freelancing skills. The concentration encourages the technology student to interact with the students in the business concentration by recording, mixing and mastering the music for MAD Dragon Music Group projects, and engaging in live performance production.
