Goldey-Beacom College is under fire after an ad criticizing music majors was sent to prospective students.

The promotional mailing sent to high schoolers was an advertisement for the college’s new Pep Band.

“Heading off to college to major in music? Well, good luck with that. Want a college degree that leads to a real job?” asked the Goldey-Beacom brochure.

The ad did not win over parents, prospective students or musicians.

The Goldey-Beacom Facebook page has been hammered with angry comments about the college discouraging students from pursing a careers in the arts.

In response, the college released a statement on their Facebook page : “The message lacked good taste and respect for the fine arts in general, and music in particular. This communication was not fully vetted and approved prior to mailing, and certainly does not reflect our core values as an institution.”
