Minor in Music

The music minor offers students a broad spectrum of the subject both as an art form and as a global "language." Students are required to master the rudiments of musical theory and to emerge with a comprehensive view of music history as well as the fundamentals of informed listening. Students also study an instrument of their choosing and participare in one of the University's performing ensembles.
