Music Minor

Description of Minor

The minor in music is intended for students with musical skills who do not wish to pursue careers in music. This program does not satisfy the requirement for certification in a minor teaching area. The minimum requirement for the minor is 24 credit hours. Music history/literature and music electives must be chosen in consultation with a designated music faculty adviser. An audition is required in the applied music area.
