SUMMARY

A degree in Recording Arts Technology is not only a valuable choice, but generally a necessary first step for students endeavoring to pursue a career as a sound engineer, a sound designer, or a music engineer. In fact, recording arts technology is a ​unique degree coming in at the 281st most popular degree. Last year alone, there were 502 recording arts technology diplomas received. In-state tuition for recording arts technology at private colleges is, on average, 3.9 times more spendy than their public counterparts.

With only 38 universities offering this degree you might have a smaller selection of institutions that will have an option for you. If you're looking to surround yourself with other recording arts technology majors, look at universities in Tennessee which have the most students admitted to recording arts technology annually. Zooming out, the best region to study recording arts technology is in the Southeast region with The Art Institute of Atlanta, Savannah College of Art and Design, and Belmont University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection for the top conference to study recording arts technology is the Ohio Valley Conference with Belmont University representing the conference. From our list on the best colleges, our choice for the best university for recording arts technology is Johns Hopkins University.

The objectively best school does not mean it is the 'best' school for you. There might be lots of angels to consider when choosing ​university. Features such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food might refashion your thoughts of where to go to school. Here at authority.org, we've weighed the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are intrigued by which recording arts technology university has the top college campus, the winner is Ithaca College. If you are mostly interested in which university is home to the top campus, we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, professor reviews, government databases, and more in order to evaluate every major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our comprehensive list for the universities with the best student life and our pick for the university with the best student life for recording arts technology is Johns Hopkins University. Curious why? Keep reading to discover more about Authority's top recommendations. Some of our conclusions will probably surprise you.

If expense is a primary deciding factor in your decisions, you might be cautious about Johns Hopkins University. Johns Hopkins University appears to be the most expensive college for recording arts technology, at least regarding out of state students. We have an entire list of the most expensive colleges that might put the price tag of Johns Hopkins University into perspective. Additionally, you could be interested to know that recording arts technology is the 267th most expensive major in America, with an average cost of $26,100. On a broader scale, the most costly state for recording arts technology nationally is Maryland with costs at the main institution, Johns Hopkins University, of $55,350. To zoom out even further, the most costly region for recording arts technology is the Mid East region which is best demonstrated with American University with a cost of $49,070, Johns Hopkins University with a cost of $55,350, and Ithaca College with a cost of $45,274.

On the bright side, the most affordable college for recording arts technology is Minnesota State University Moorhead. Authority.org's full list of the most affordable universities can be found here.

In-state students can expect to pay about $10,300 for a degree in recording arts technology. The price balloons intensely to a median of $26,100 for the out-of-state public-school undergraduate. On that note, our choice for the college with the best value for recording arts technology: Johns Hopkins University. On this page you will find our comprehensive list about the colleges we believe to be the best value in general. That being said, this idea is based on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, as such, we are using out-of-state tuition as the baseline.

Earnings for recording arts technology majors vary a lot, but two-years after graduation graduates will typically make around $53,100. While there can be a lot of variation in earnings potential; top earners can experience pay up to $104,800. Even right out of university, the lowest earning jobs within the recording arts technology space make $27,000, which could be worse. The top earning grads for recording arts technology studied at Johns Hopkins University and if you are looking for colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The prevailing diversity of recording arts technology ranks below average, arriving within the 38th percentile of all programs. The university with the most composite diversity for recording arts technology is Academy of Art University and here you can find our general list for the schools which have the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Recording Arts Technology is only in the 80th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is even further below average in the 36th percentile. White students compose the largest share, 67%, of scholars studying recording arts technology. Additionally, 74% of students pursuing a recording arts technology degree are men.

The median ranking of recording arts technology professors is 4 stars, a score which is actually the median score for all majors; this is a fine. If you are looking for the most popular recording arts technology professor in the nation, look no further than Eugenia Sumnik-Levins at Los Angeles Valley College. This may be a shock, but the best rated professors of recording arts technology from student rankings come from Savannah College of Art and Design. As we incorporate data beyond basic rankings it becomes clear that the college with the best instructors for recording arts technology is Johns Hopkins University. You will find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with many of the top examples of instructors in the U.S.

Finally, the most difficult school to get into for recording arts technology is Johns Hopkins University. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we do have a general list of the hardest colleges to get into. But, we hope you believe that looking at academics with a lens primarily formed from superlatives could be said to be the root of many of higher education's fundamental problems. We at Authority hope you explore our other pages on different topics and read some of our informative background articles on beneficial things to look for as your school search develops.
