A minor in music is designed for students who wish to explore the field of music while majoring in another area. The student may customize the curriculum to realize their own musical and creative potential. To earn this minor, you must complete the courses listed below and earn a grade of C- or better in each. Students are required to meet all course prerequisite and proficiency level expectations. 6 resident credits must be earned at the 200 level or above.
A student may elect the Pass/Not-Pass grading option for non-degree elective courses only. The Pass/Not-Pass grading option is not available for General Education or any electives required for the major.
The student learning outcomes for the music minor are as follows:
- Students will demonstrate knowledge of music theory sufficient to analyze basic musical forms and structures and to relate theoretical concepts to sound.
- Students will develop basic performance ability as ensemble members or soloists.
- Students will demonstrate knowledge of the history and literature of at least one era or style of music, including its social, political, and cultural contexts.
Students can join in the music making, even if music is not their major, with a music minor program that includes 18 credit hours of music courses. This allows students flexibility to pursue their interests along with an 8-hour core of music classes.
This program is available on campus though some courses may be available as distance learning.
