The program's course of study includes a four-year, 58-point progression of courses structured around the study of entrepreneurship. There are three main areas of curricular study: business, production, and history & criticism. Students take courses on business and legal issues as they relate to the specialized needs of the contemporary music industry, in conjunction with a series of practicums in the recording studio, where students are expected to become proficient in a range of recorded music practices. Concurrently, students also explore critical writing and music journalism, delving into the cultural impact of recorded music and the history of contemporary musical genres such as rock, R&B, hip-hop, and pop, world and electronica. By graduation, students are expected to actualize a comprehensive creative plan to launch a music business venture, such as a record label, production company or new media enterprise.
