Music ministry major singing on stage

The Contemporary Music Center provides students with the opportunity to live and work in the refining context of community while seeking to understand how God will have them integrate music, faith, and business.

The program offers three tracks: Artist, Business, and Technical. Students within each of the tracks receive instruction, experience, and a uniquely Christ-centered perspective on creativity and the marketplace, while working together to mount and execute a week-long tour at the end of the semester.

Each track includes coursework, labs, directed study, and a practicum. Students earn 16 semester hours of credit. Get more details at BestSemester.
