List of Sound Technician Schools and Colleges

Sound technicians are often referred to as sound engineering technicians, and degree programs in this field are often found under the name sound engineering technology. Sound technician degrees are offered at the associate's and bachelor's degree levels.

How to Choose a Sound Technician School

Two degree options exist for prospective students who wish to become sound engineering technicians. An associate's degree program in sound engineering or audio technology is commonly offered by many community colleges and introduces students to the fundamental concepts and skills needed to become a sound technician. Bachelor's programs in audio engineering or sound engineering technology typically cover many of the same topics, though they include more general education coursework as well.

Further considerations for students in this field:

  • A bachelor's degree program in sound technology is much more thorough and takes an additional two years to complete.
  • A prospective sound technician student should consider the quality of sound equipment that a community college or a university has to offer.
  • Targeted schools should ideally have a fully equipped sound recording studio where students can learn the craft of recording, mixing and producing.
