The 17-19 credit hour minor option is offered to students wishing to augment their educational experiences with a general study in music. As with the music major, those pursuing the music minor select a primary area for study, vocal or instrumental. Students pursuing the music minor may participate in School of Music ensembles, applied music and select music methods classes.
The School of Music administration and faculty leadership strongly encourage students not majoring in music to pursue the music minor. As with all music curricula experience, this encounter in music helps formalize training in the humanities and broaden the student’s experience in music performance.
The music minor curriculum does not require a senior recital, music internship or student teaching. However, all students pursuing music minors are required to register attendance at a total of 24 approved concerts and/or recitals before graduation.
