Music Minor

The music minor offers students the opportunity to continue their music training and performance experiences while pursuing a major in any other field.  Students participate in performing ensembles, take applied studio lessons, and explore electives that may be supportive to their major such as music industry, composition or music arranging. 

Notes:    
  • Music Minors must audition on their applied instrument with the appropriate faculty and be accepted into a studio.
  • Music Minors must declare their minor with the music office, and meet with the Chair for approval and to arrange advising with the appropriate faculty. (This will allow the intended minor to show in Banner, and will assist with graduation advising.)
  • Student files will be maintained in the music office as they are for the music majors.
  • MUSC 212 and MUSC 213 also count as BACRs.

Grade Requirement for all courses offered by the Music Department: ≥C is the minimum acceptable grade for any music course required for graduation (including transferred music courses).
