Music Studies

Music Studies can be combined with many other interests and professional studies.  Besides the traditional careers in music performance and teaching, many other options are available to music graduates. Careful coordination of non-music courses with the requirements of a music degree can lead to entry into the music industry. Graduates in the arts are often sought by companies for training in personnel management. More and more students are using their interest in and love of music to earn music degrees that serve as pre-professional programs for entry into medical, dentistry, law, divinity, or other professional schools. Please note that some careers below will require further education.
