Rowan University Music Industry Application
Admissions Requirements

Minimum GPA: 2.7

Candidates applying for admission to the BS in Music Industry must meet the general requirements for admission to Rowan University and are required to submit a separate essay (250 to 500 words) and portfolio via this online form within one week from applying to Rowan. A musical instrument audition is not required as this is not a music performance major.

In this music industry essay applicants must explain why they want to work in the music industry and must precisely tell us what their experience is in the field. Relevant activities include producing music, learning any digital audio software (Logic, Pro Tools, Garage Band, Fruity Loops, Cubase, etc.), playing in a band, booking and promoting concerts, writing for a music blog, presenting on a radio show, DJing, managing social media, running sound and lights for a school play, taking music production classes, engineering live sound, creating band merchandise, help promoting someone else's band if you are not in one, recording other musicians, shadowing music industry professionals such as audio engineers, internships in the music business or music technology fields (recording studio, radio station, label, venue, etc.), etc. Please submit links to websites or social media pages to demonstrate your work and collaborations. These can include links to your Soundcloud, Facebook, YouTube, Reverb Nation, Instagram pages and personal/band websites. Direct links to Dropbox or Google Drive folders containing your work are also accepted.

Candidates are evaluated on three aspects: quality of content and writing of the essay, quality of portfolio and grades.

We are looking for self-motivated and passionate students who naturally engage in creating music or promoting music, or both.

Note: All students wishing to join the Music Industry major must submit this application. That applies to high school seniors, transfer students and Rowan students wishing to switch from a different major.
