Minor in Music


Mr. Eric Charnofsky
Coordinator, Undergraduate Studies in Music (BA)

Undergraduate students can declare a minor in music without passing an audition. The minor in music requires 15 credit units of music coursework.


Music Theory (6 credits):

MUTH 103: Music Theory I (3 credits)
MUTH 104: Music Theory II (3 credits)

For former music majors, Theory I for majors (MUTH 101) may be substituted for MUTH 103, and Theory II for majors (MUTH 102) may be substituted for MUTH 104.

Credit earned through AP Music Theory or CIM Music Theory (MUTH 103) proficiency examination does not reduce the overall 15-credit hour requirement for the minor. The additional 3 credits may be taken in MUHI, MUGN, or an additional MUTH course with instructor permission.

Music History or Appreciation (6 credits):

Any two 3-credit courses drawn from MUHI or MUGN.

Electives (3 credits):

Any 3 credits in MUGN, MUHI, MUAP (applied lessons) or MUEN (ensembles).

MUAP and MUEN courses may be taken for 1 or 2 credits each and can be used in any combination to fulfill this requirement. MUAP courses require an applied lesson fee.
