The Bachelor of Science in Music and an Outside Field (B.S.O.F.) is a special degree offered by the Jacobs School of Music in conjunction with other programs at IU. It offers a flexible option if you are majoring in music and also want to pursue a strong interest in another subject area, such as contemporary dance or musical theatre.
Coordinated through the Jacobs School with additional advising through our program, your concentration in music builds on your training in instrumental or vocal performance, ballet, composition, or jazz studies. With this degree, you also study contemporary dance or musical theatre at nearly the same level of engagement as your music major.
