The Music concentration allows students to engage in their music passion inviting them to use their vocal or instrumental talents while also learning about the theory and practice of the music industry. Students will have opportunities to gain hands-on experiences as music managers of one of our music themed student-run business ventures such as: First Step Records (music business label), MARS (Millikin Audio Recording Services), or Arts Cafe (live event performances).
Be prepared to lead in event promotion, music product merchandising, personnel and operation management, talent promotion and more as you dive into the world of recording studios, theaters and concerts, and music organizations! See the list of the core classes in Arts Administration.
Want to Go Deeper in Music? Millikin University’s School of Music allows any major to audition and perform in their orchestras, choirs, and jazz groups. Consider adding a second major as a BA in Music or one of the music minors or music certificates.
