The Bachelor of Arts in Music Technology at Montana State University is a synthesis of traditional musical training and application through new technologies.

Working alongside faculty, Music Technology majors compose original music and collaborate on artistic works and projects with students from across campus. This combination of academic study, creative work, community involvement, and hands-on training produces well-rounded musicians and digital media artists.
In addition to being award-winning composers and audio engineers, the Music Technology faculty and staff are dedicated and engaging educators.
