Abstract (Summary)
The belief in Taiwan is that through higher education a better life may be had. Although higher education is no longer a promise for a better life in Taiwan society these days because of the saturation of highly educated population, to obtain a higher education is still most people's goal.

Without adequate career counseling, together with a desire of obtaining higher education, most of undergraduate music majors in Taiwan have pursued higher degrees without regard to future employability. This study examined undergraduate music majors' awareness of music-related career opportunities in Taiwan.

The results of the survey indicated that undergraduate music majors in Taiwan are unaware of career opportunities in music-related fields other than teaching and performing. However, the results implied that students do have the potential to be strengthened in career awareness.
