The music minor is designed to provide the student with a general background in music theory and literature and with intermediate skills in some performance areas. A total of 18 credits in music is required to complete the minor. A student who has had sufficient background to waive any of the required courses (12 credits) must substitute those courses with appropriate advanced courses, e.g., MUS 302 in place of MUS 210, or MUS 325-326 in place of MUS 225-226. The same rule applies to additional electives (6 credits).

In addition, the student pursuing a minor in music must participate in a performing group for three semesters.
