Reports on findings from an international survey of music industry studies undergraduate programs designed to explore the curricular make up of such degrees. The survey asked how many general education courses, host discipline (e.g., music, business or communication department) courses, and music industry courses existed in the various reported degree programs. Results of the survey indicate how competing curricular requirements of a program, department, institution or accrediting body may result in degree programs that offer only a minimal amount of course work in music industry studies. The author offers some suggestions for how music industry educators and administrators might reconsider the make up of such degrees to better serve student and industry needs in the future.
