Has anyone ever gone to college in pursuit of this degree, or is anyone currently in college pursuing this degree?
I want to become a producer, but I'm having a hard time finding colleges that offer this program. I've only found one that is in my area, but it is only a 2-year program. Is this typical for this type of degree? Just general info about your time in college while studying this would be helpful.

Thanks

It's so that I can get the skills necessary to produce my own music, and work all of those fancy sound boards and stuff like that.
Of course, I'll be getting a job as an actual producer, but I'll always be making my own music.

Thanks to the people who have suggested schools. I'll look into them. Although I'd really like to stay in the Washington state area. The only school I've found here is the Art Institute of Seattle.

Well, not right off the bat. That's why I'm posting this thread. I don't know much about the steps involved. I'm stuck on the basic step of proper college education.

You see what I've found is getting into a lot of these programs is very challenging because they're usually very small.

I've found that you need a portfolio of your recording work along with a long list of things you've done to show why your the best candidate. At least it was like that for Drexel.

I don't know how many programs there are in Washington, you may have to look out of the state.

i know 8 guys who did audio engineering degrees/diplomas. 2 got different jobs in music, 1 has his own studio 1 works for another studio and the rest are working in crappy jobs

not exactly a 'growth' industry

Yes, there are degrees available at colleges. I have a friend who is doing his and it is also a 2 (or 2.5) year program. I wouldn't get such a degree because the business is already so saturated that it is not that easy to get a good job (my friend doing the program also tells me this). He has also told me that people have to work their way up from "runners" (producer's bitch) even if they have a degree in it. Doesn't sound like a very good field of work IMO.
EDIT: To the guy above - exactly something like that.

Well. My situation and mindset for wanting this type of job is: Not going to college is not an option for me. Not doing something related to music for a living is not an option for me. I'd really love to make music for a living, but they don't really offer a degree for that that I have noticed...
I know it sounds kind of child-ish, but that's really how I feel. I need to be in a music-related career.

^ That schools program for Audio Recording is much wider than the one in Seattle. It seems to go more in depth. I'll have to get more info on that.

Yes.
TS - you will get to make almost no music yourself, but have to deal with tons of music that you probably won't even like.

Where are you from?
Here in Canada there are plenty of schools that offer this program. I'm going into my second term at Metalworks Institute here in Ontario.

When I was choosing my college, I found that the longest program was two years, generally. There was only one that is three years. Mine is Audio Engineering and Production, it's a 1 year (11 months) program, covers a lot of stuff.

Feel free to message me with any questions

And to the one above me ^ - that's not true at all.... at least not in my experience.

Computers and technology will make your job in criticaly low demand and eventually obsolete, possibly before you even earn your degree. I would say dont waste your time and effort in a college course that is hard to find in the first place, just so you can graduate into a world that doesnt need you.

No. No one has ever gone to college in pursuit of this degree, and no one is currently in college pursuing this degree.
