B.A. in Music — Music Industry Concentration

The Music Industry concentration has two tracks.

  • Music Business
  • Sound Engineering

Music Business Track

The Music Business track coordinates the requirements for the B.A. degree in music with basic studies in the music industry, music law, marketing, and business law. Students at IU Southeast have the opportunity to gain real-world experience and connections through numerous internship opportunities.

Auditioning/Interviewing for the Music Business Track

Acceptance into the Music Business track consists of both an interview and an audition on the candidate's primary instrument. Because the Music Business track is not a performance oriented degree, the level of performance does not need to reflect the same level of performance skill required of performance majors. However, since it is a music degree, we require that candidates have previous training on a musical instrument or voice and can demonstrate basic literacy in conventional music notation. Candidates should be prepared to discuss reasons why they wish to pursue the Music Business track.

Sound Engineering Track

The Sound Engineering track within the Music Industry concentration at Indiana University Southeast is designed to give students a well-rounded education in liberal arts courses, while exposing them to practical, theoretical, and creative applications of sound engineering in the field of music. Students are given opportunities to engage in numerous projects through internships and courses that are taught on location with our studio partner, TNT Productions, and other regional facilities.

Auditioning/Interviewing for the Sound Engineering Track

Acceptance into the Music Industry/Sound Engineering program is based both on an interview and a demonstration of the candidate’s fluency on a particular instrument or voice. Because the Music Industry concentration is not a performance oriented degree, the level of performance does not need to reflect the same level of performance skill as required for performance majors; however, since it is a music degree, we require that candidates have some facility on a musical instrument or voice and can demonstrate basic literacy in conventional music notation. Candidates should be prepared to discuss reasons why they wish to pursue the Sound Engineering track. Support materials (CD recordings, creative work, past editing projects, etc.) are helpful, but not necessary for admittance into the program. Some basic pitch matching exercises may be asked of the candidate.
