The Bachelor of Science degree in Music (with Studies in Music Industry and Recording Technology) is designed to give students a broad understanding of the activities and responsibilities of a music industry professional, focusing on academic study in music, music industry, business, and recording technology. Acceptance into this program requires an audition.
To be eligible for graduation, students must complete a minimum of 120 credits, achieve a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or above, satisfy the College’s residency requirement and complete all General Education Requirements of the College. A minimum grade of 2.0 is required for First Year Seminar and all courses taken as part of Foundations. In addition, students majoring in Music Industry and Recording Technology must earn a minimum grade of 2.0 in all required major courses.
The General Education Requirements of the college require students to successfully complete First Year Seminar, Foundations (FCO 103 will be a required co-requisite with FCO 105 for students who have a high school GPA below 3.20), Disciplinary Perspectives, and a Constellation. Students who enter the college with 30 credit hours completed will not take a First Year Seminar course and therefore must take an additional 3 credits for graduation.
