What is a Concentration?

A "concentration" is simply a specific area of study. Since music is such a diverse discipline, students at IU Southeast have the opportunity to pursue a concentration that best develops his/her interests and skills. Each degree concentration has its own set of requirements in addition to those required by the university for the B. A. degree or the B. S. degree. Students must declare an intended concentration and track prior to auditioning to become a music major. Students also have the opportunity to pursue two concentrations within the B. A. in music degree.

Bachelor of Science in Music Concentrations

All of the concentrations/tracks for the Bachelor of Science program in music require auditions. Acceptance into the Music program is based on the audition and other requirements. Contact the Music Department for more detailed audition information.
