Music Arts Management Major

What Will I Learn?

This interdisciplinary program will give you a taste of virtually every department on campus. With courses ranging from music theory, music history, to business management, you will be well prepared to work in the music industry.

What is Unique About Our Program?

Rather than concentrating in any one department, you will study within the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Business and Economics. The degree is also designed to make adding a minor or second major for specialization easy, and you will still be able to graduate on time in four years. For example, add a minor in:

  • Theatrical & entertainment technology
  • Digital audio production
  • Public relations
  • Marketing

If you decide not to add on to your major, this degree will prepare you for work in the not-for-profit sector, standard business sector, arts organization management, and theater/venue management to name just a few options. In addition you will be given skills to create and market your own music, create your own brand, and explore the music industry.

What Are My Career Opportunities?

From the skills you will gain in this program, you will be ready for work in the not-for-profit sector, standard business sector, or theater and venue management among many others.

Our program can lead to careers in:

  • Arts organization administration and management
