18 Credits Required

The music minor is designed to provide the student with a general background in music theory, literature, and intermediate skills in some performance areas. A student who has had sufficient background to waive any of the required courses must substitute those courses with appropriate advanced courses, e.g. MUS 302 in place of MUS 210, or MUS 325 and MUS 326 in place of MUS 225 and MUS 226. The same rule applies to additional electives (6 credits).
