Minor in Music

The minor is designed to meet one of the following objectives:
  1. A course of study in music with sufficient breadth and depth to satisfy the artistic aspiration of students from any major who have some background and experience in music, or
  2. An alternative to the rigorous course of study required for the major in music for those students who do not aspire to a musical career.

Acceptance criteria for the minor include a successful audition and a theory/aural skill assessment prior to enrollment in private lessons or the theory sequence. The ability to read music is required. Musicianship (MUTH 1129, 1130) must be taken concurrently with the corresponding offering of written music theory (MUTH 1229, 1230). In any given term, private study will be approved only if the student is enrolled for at least one other course (not including MUAS 1010) required for the minor. Approval is required for study beyond four credits. Ensemble participation is encouraged.

An audition is required to minor in music. View additional Information on undergraduate admissions and auditions.
