You’ll explore the workings of the music industry, but also study to understand and perform music in an exciting, hands-on learning environment.

Your career will be significantly enhanced with a complete general education, in the context of a four-year fully accredited bachelors program.

Classes in recording, business, and economics—combined with internships and the natural synergy with the music- recording program—result in a unique and effective education that will help prepare you for a successful career in the music industry.
