JAY Z‘s Roc Nation and Brooklyn’s Long Island University (LIU) have partnered to launch Roc Nation School of Music, Sports & Entertainment. The newly-established school will begin accepting applications this fall for the fall 2021 semester and will offer undergraduate degrees in music, music technology, entrepreneurship and production, and sports management. Students will be given educational opportunities to interact with guest artists and gain internship experiences.
The inaugural class commences in fall 2021. 25% of incoming freshmen will receive Roc Nation Hope Scholarships. Scholars will be selected from a group of academically competitive, need-based students from New York and will graduate debt-free.
“Our proximity in and around New York City’s epicenter of music and sports clearly positions us to offer unparalleled experiential learning and access to professional opportunities that will launch students to success,” stated LIU President Dr. Kimberly Cline.
