This degree combines a major in music with an opportunity to study in one of many available nonmusic areas, such as business, communication, electrical engineering technology, psychology, or the sciences. Some outside fields have specific course requirements. Students should consult with an advisor in the Department of Music for this information. Some outside fields require a 3-credit internship as a part of the outside field hours, and others offer the internship as an option. Consult with your advisor. Ensemble participation is not required during the semester of internship.

To earn the B.S. in Music and an Outside Field, one must satisfy the requirements of IPFW (see Part 7) and the music core, and complete the courses listed below. Credits required in the outside field must be approved in writing by an appropriate faculty member in the outside-field program of study. A record of this approval from the outside-field department will be kept as a part of your permanent file. A maximum of 6 credits in the outside field may be taken with the pass/not-pass option. An overall GPA of 2.50 or higher must be maintained in the outside field and is required for graduation. A course with a grade lower than C will not be counted toward outside-field course requirements.
