Sound Design Minor
The minor in sound design allows students to study and create work in sound as it relates to film/video, new media, theatre, radio, and installation/exhibition projects. The minor draws on courses offered through the School of Communication, Bienen School of Music, and Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences. The minor is open to all Northwestern undergraduate students.
