About this Program

The Music Business AAS Degree is an innovative
curriculum designed to prepare students for
today�s music industry. The degree has a business
entrepreneur emphasis and is designed for
both the performing musician and the business
student. The program combines a flexible
curriculum with an emphasis in business and
marketing, along with music industry related
course and experiences. Typical career paths
include musician, manager
or agent, songwriter, and publisher. Since the
industry has radically changed over the last
decade and has largely become a field in which
Do-It-Yourself skills have become essential
survival tools, much of the curriculum is focused
on the self-sufficiency of the student, and the
ability to access all available means of production
and promotion with superb technical skills, and
relevant industry knowledge. The entertainment
industry is one of the largest industries
worldwide. Next to the film industry, the music
industry represents the largest component of the
entertainment industry. Publishing, marketing,
musical instrument sales, record companies,
copyrights, management, music production,
evolving Internet opportunities and other
components of the music industry are explored in
the new program. Wherever music is created or
heard, there exists employment opportunities.
