Department of Music Bachelor of Music, Music Minor

Music Minor

Program Description

The undergraduate with an interest in music can select one of two music minors: Plan I-Applied Music and Performance; Plan II-Music Theory and History.

At the beginning of the freshman year, but not later than the start of the junior year, the degree candidate may select the music minor. Before this choice can be official, the chair of music must meet with the candidate to approve the scheme of courses. Following this conference, the schedule of required courses for the music minor is entered on a “minor contract” that is filed with the registrar. The music minor does not lead to certification in music instruction. See individual course descriptions for prerequisites and concurrent enrollment requirements.
