B.A. in Music – Concentration in Music Industry

About the Program

The B.A. in Music with a Concentration in Music Industry allows students to learn the areas of music associated with publishing, recording, marketing, talent acquisition, concert production, media relations, and merchandising. Monmouth is one of only a few schools around the country to offer a concentration in music industry.

You will make and market music for real artists, produce and promote live events, and participate in 3-credit internships (MU-401, -402, and -403) that provide valuable experience in the music and entertainment business. In addition to learning from faculty who have worked as record producers, music directors, and record label and media executives, you will also take classes in the Leon Hess Business School for a well-rounded perspective on what it takes to succeed in today’s music industry.
