Music General Studies
The Music General Studies curriculum is designed for students who seek a broad program of general music education rather than intense specialization during the undergraduate years. After completing the music foundation sequence, students round out their undergraduate curriculum from a wide and increasing range of upper-level music electives such as Recording Technology, Composition, Contemporary Commercial Arranging, and Improvisation/Jazz and Popular Theory. Coastal Carolina University recognizes that the field of music is broad, multifaceted, rapidly changing and very competitive. In an effort to offer initial career council and determine an appropriate course of study that will prepare our students for a lifetime in music, all incoming students must complete a performance audition on their primary instrument before being admitted as music majors.
