Music Minor

Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

The music minor offers a coherent sequence of courses that will provide students with a reasonably broad introduction to the historical, theoretical, and practical branches of music. Required courses, totaling 19 credits, are as follows.


The department recommends that students considering a music minor take the prerequisite courses in the freshman year.

It is possible for students to test out of one or more of the required keyboard harmony, music theory, and/or musicianship courses; students should consult with the undergraduate advisor and/or the course instructor. The Satisfactory/No Credit (S/NC) grading option is not permitted for courses required for the minor. All students interested in taking private lessons must complete a Request for Private Lessons form in the office fo the Department of Music, Room 110, Music Building. Music majors have first priority in scheduling private lessons, which cost an additional $395 per term.
