WHAT IS A MUSIC MINOR?
Students who have strong background, talent, and interest in music but do not wish to major
in music may elect a minor, consisting of one year's study each of
music theory and music history, and 8 additional credits of electives,
including either performance study (private lessons) and/or ensemble
participation. Students will be accepted into the program with
completion of an interview with the department chair and contingent upon classes having space available.
Listed below are the required courses for a minor in music.
