What can you do with a Music or Music Business Degree?

Where words fail, music speaks.” ― Hans Christian Andersen

Music degrees can lead to a career as a performer or educator, but they can also be the career starter for critics, curators, lyricists, composers, and music therapists. At GHC, musically inclined students with an entrepreneurial spirit can opt for the Music Business pathway and prepare for a career in event planning, licensing, consulting, production, music law, and more.

All GHC students are welcome to take music courses and participate in ensembles.
