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.
All students interested in becoming a minor must complete an entrance audition on their primary instrument or voice. Please visit our auditions page
