Recording Industry  
Advisor: Matt Foglia

The Entertainment Technology minor consists of courses primarily from media arts, recording industry, and theatre that introduce sound, video, and lighting technologies used within the entertainment industry. The student must complete 18 hours of coursework across a minimum of three departments. No more than 9 hours from any single course prefix is permitted. No more than 9 hours combined from EMC and VFP. Audio Production majors may not use RIM courses required in the Audio Production major. See the minor advisor to help select courses.

Interdisciplinary Minors

Interdisciplinary minors require the student to complete a minimum of 15 to 21 hours from a list of specific courses. Unless otherwise noted, a student may take no more than 6 hours of courses from a single department until he or she surpasses the required minimum number of hours necessary for completing the minor. Exceptions to this rule may be found within the discussions of several of the minors. In most cases, a student is also limited to just 3 hours of credit toward the minor in the same department or discipline in which he or she is taking a major. Students must fulfill all departmental prerequisites for any course within an interdisciplinary minor. In some cases, advisors may approve course substitutions within these program requirements.
