The GREATBATCH SCHOOL OF MUSIC, HOUGHTON COLLEGE, recently received approval from the NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION for a new Music Industry major offered as a Bachelor of Science degree.
The new major will be offered beginning in the FALL 2015 semester.
This new major will allow students to be more marketable in such job sectors as music technology and production, music business, worship arts, music industry, recording and broadcast engineering, artist and label marketing, artist booking and management, staff songwriting, music publishing, tour management, live sound engineering, tour support, concert promotion, film and video game composition and performance law.
