Hey guys, first post here. I'm just psyched to have found a forum that's basically all about my interests, but I digress-- I've come seeking some advice. I'm going into my third year of study in college, and I need to choose a college in Michigan that ties into my career choice of an audio engineer. I have the option of attending college in Hawaii as well, but I really have no idea which college on the islands could offer a degree in what I want to do. So my question to you guys is: What college do you think would be the best, and what degree seems to fit what I want to do? Any and all responses will be very much appreciated, as I'm kinda lost here. -Michigan Tech University offers the degrees: BA in Sound Design, or a BS in Audio Production & Technology. They seem to have the strongest web presence, and is the only college not requiring an audition with a primary instrument. -Wayne State University offers a Bachelor of Music in Music Technology, along with the promise that graduates are hired as audio engineers, composers, etc. They require an audition before an 'audition commitee,' and a technical resume detailing hardware and software abilities. -University of Michigan offers a dual degree program in the form of a BA in Sound Engineering. They require math up to Calc 3, Intro. to Differential Equations, Physics-- challenging courses. So really, my question is this: Which one would you pick? I'm lost.
