The Contemporary Music Minor augments curricular offerings at CCU to include specific studies in contemporary music. The minor allows students a real-world music industry experience and prepares college-age students for careers in the entertainment industry, challenging them to live out their faith as Christ-followers.

The CMC semester away program is a division of Greenville University and fully accredited. Students from all majors are invited to apply; no prior experience is required. All CMC course tuition and fees are paid directly to CMC. CCU academic scholarships cannot be applied to tuition charges for off-campus enrollment. The CCU residency requirement for a minor is not applicable to the Contemporary Music Minor.
