The Music Production A.A.S. program, the only one of its kind in The City University of New York, is an innovative program inte- grating music production and recording studio training that prepares students for jobs in the music and recording industries. Graduates of the program can look forward to career opportunities at commercial recording and production facilities, on-site record- ing venues, radio and broadcast networks, and manufacturers who serve the music production and recording industries.

To achieve that goal, the curriculum offers a strong foundation in technology and practical recording studio experience, together with a broad base of general education in the liberal arts, sciences, and music. Music Production classes are taught in the Music department's technology laboratories and multi-track recording studios. During their last semester of the curriculum, students can participate in the cooperative internship program, which allows them to work as apprentices in professional working environments. The A.A.S. degree in Music Production is designed as a career program that provides the necessary academic foundation and specific training to students who plan to begin or advance in employment immediately after graduation. Many students choose to transfer their credits to baccalaureate degree programs at four-year institutions both inside and outside the City University of New York.
