Requirements for the Minor in Music

The Minor in Music is an excellent way for students to pursue their passion for music from a broad perspective, but also offers the flexibility for a student to customize a course of study specific to their particular interests.

36 credits required, including:

  • 300-level Seminar (6 credits)
    • One class from courses numbered MUSC 303-339
  • Music Electives (12 credits)
    • Any MUSC credits, including Music classes, ensembles, chamber music, applied lessons, and MUSC 299

Students pursuing work in an interdisciplinary area (e.g. ethnomusicology, media studies, music psychology) may petition for elective courses outside of Music to count towards the minor.

* As per the college catalog, a score of 4 or 5 on the AP Music Theory exam grants six credits. This does not grant students automatic exemption from MUSC 103 and/or MUSC 110; exemption in these courses is determined by the departmental placement exam. Credits earned via the AP exam do not count for elective credit in the major or minor.
