Recording TechnologyStudents who love music and are seeking a career in the music industry other than the traditional degrees in teaching or performance can choose the music industry major. With one of the first Music Industry Programs in the United States, UW Oshkosh graduates have established careers in the record, film, video, multimedia and advertising industries across the country. Our students have won the Student Music Awards presented by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences for excellence in the recording arts.
