Music Minor


The music minor offers opportunities for both vocal and instrumental musicians to combine artistic practice with other academic pursuits. Music minors must identify a specific area of musical practice in; voice, piano, viola, cello, or violin.  In addition to building a foundation of music fundamentals; history, theory and composition, students apply their skills through private music lessons and participation in one or more of the department's thriving musical groups.
In order to earn a minor in music, students must complete 30 credits in music. Students wishing to declare a minor in music must arrange for an audition with the music faculty.  Upon acceptance into the minor, students will need to file a Request to Add a Minor form with the Office of the Registrar. 

Music minor degree requirements can be viewed in the course catalog.

NOTE:  Interdisciplinary arts and instrumental strings majors may not earn a minor in music.
