*The College Core Curriculum (CCC) is a compilation of required courses that students must take to graduate. Each CCC category has a variety of class options that fulfill the requirements, including courses that overlap into students’ major requirements. The above list is a suggested course outline; however, 60 course credits outside of this major are also required to meet the 120 hour minimum necessary for graduation. CCC requirements can be taken at any time during a student’s undergraduate studies. For more information, please see the University Course Catalog.

**Pre-requisite classes need to be taken before upper-level courses. For the Music Industry major, pre-requisites are needed before taking MUSB 425, BUAD 323, BUAD 300, and others. Pre-requisite requirements are listed with their upper-level courses in the Course Catalog.
