Joint Majors

The following joint department majors allow students to get a strong major that merges multiple areas of study.

Music Business

There are two ways that a student interested in music business can pursue this career path through Anderson University.

First, the Falls School of Business offers a marketing major with a concentration in music business. This program is for the student who wants to focus on business and take at least nine hours in music business. For this major, there are no music theory or performance requirements. All students must complete the business core, plus the required courses in marketing, in addition to courses in music business.

Second, the Anderson University School of Music, Theatre, and Dance offers a major in music business. The music business major is best for students who want their primary focus to be in music.

Students in both programs may participate in Orangehaus Records, the Anderson University recording label.
