Although the Business of Music Minor is open to all students of the College except for B.S. in Business Administration majors (see page 168 for the appropriate minor), this minor is most applicable for students majoring in Music, Theater, Dance, Arts, Creative Writing, or Communications programs.
The Business of Music minor is designed as a flexible course of study which will lead participants into career interest areas in the music business. The required courses investigate the many areas relative to the music business, including arts administration, recording industry, music publishing, music criticism, copyright law, broadcast industry, unions and guilds, and music merchandising. Additional courses, which complement these areas, are recommended in consultation with the adviser of the program. This program enables students to seek entrylevel positions in the areas of study, as well as to pursue advanced study in such areas as arts administration and music merchandising.
