The Music Minor consists of a basic core of study in music theory along with ensemble performance, an introduction to music history, and optional private instruction. The minor allows for individual preferences in intensifying studies in certain aspects of music and broadening the scope of academic pursuits while focusing on a major in a different field.
Why Consider a Music Minor?
This program is designed for the liberal arts student who has an interest in a higher level of music education but may wish to complete a major in another field. Students in the Music Minor program frequently complete studies in such fields as Theatre, Business, Journalism, Mathematics or one of the languages.
How to Declare (Admission and Declaration Process):
Freshmen and transfer students will be declared as a Music Minor after meeting with the appropriate instrumental or vocal area coordinator and advisor.
Application deadlines: Meeting with an area coordinator and advisor may occur at any time but the theory and aural skills/keyboarding sequences must begin in the fall with MUS 101/121.
A grade of C- or better is required for a student’s major or minor courses, and supporting courses for majors and minors.
