Students in the Music Business program will prepare for careers in the commercial music industry, in such fields as artist management, music publishing, concert promotion, record labels, music marketing, talent booking, music promotion & publicity, and tour management. The Music Business program is also perfect for performers who want to have the information needed to effectively navigate this fast-changing business and build their careers. The bachelor of arts degree includes the university's core liberal arts courses, plus courses in the music industry, business administration, and applied music. Music industry internships are provided to allow the student to experience the workplace and make career decisions.
In addition to providing SAT scores and transcripts, all students applying for the music business program must audition as a vocalist or instrumentalist. Auditions are held each spring and students applying for any music major must perform several musical selections before a faculty committee. For details about the audition requirements please contact the Coordinator of the Music Business program.
