Minor in Music

A minor allows students to delve into an area of interest that is outside the major. Courses in the minor are distributed among the fields of music history/literature, music theory, and performance. The minor is declared through use of an on-line form. Music minors are not required to take an audition.

Who minors in music?

The short answer is "all kinds of people!" Music minors tend to be students who were involved in music in high school, want to stayed involved in college, but don't want to pursue music as a career. The music minor is constructed with the idea of giving minors a broad overview of music history/literature, music theory/composition, and music performance. So if you have a keen interest in learning a bit about music technology or world music, music theory or the history of jazz, want to learn a new instrument/voice or participate in one of our many ensembles, the music minor may be right for you!
