Music Minor

You love music… 


You want to keep singing or playing an instrument… 


You want to know more about music, or maybe you want to find a way to involve music in your career, but you’ve chosen a different major… 

Does this sound like you? 

Then we have a minor that you’re going to get excited about! 

Depending on your interests, with a music minor you have options to explore: 

  • Performance 

  • Individual instrument or voice instruction 

  • Music history (including American music, jazz, and world music) 

  • Music industry/producing 

  • Music theory (how musicians and composers make music)
