CCCU Contemporary Music Program
The Contemporary Music Program is committed to developing artists and future music executives with a Christ-centered vision for music content, production and delivery.

- Spend a semester writing, recording, performing, producing and marketing contemporary music

The Contemporary Music Program borrows from both the monastic and artists' colony traditions, providing a unique environment for musicians and aspiring music executives to test the waters of a career in popular music. Facilities include a professional recording studio where students work together to produce a CD of original music, rehearsal space for individual and group practice, fully-equipped offices for music business students, and a media room.
The curriculum includes core seminars ("Faith, Music and Culture" and "Introduction to the Music Industry") and two elective tracks (Artist track and Executive track) for full-time students. Each student's coursework is supported with individual and group practicums and an industry internship. Sixteen semester credit hours are recommended.
