Major/Minor

The Department of Music offers two music majors and a music minor:

  • Music Performance (requires 41 hours)
  • Music in Liberal Arts, with a concentration in Music History, Theory, or Composition (requires 41 hours)
  • Music Minor (requires 19 hours)

Students who choose one of these majors may not choose the other as a second major. Both majors include a basic curriculum of music theory (MUS 171, 172, 173, 174, sixteen hours) and music history (MUS 181, 182, 183, nine hours), and four semesters of MUS 100. Both majors are demanding and stimulating, preparing students for careers in music and/or advanced degrees. Students interested in pursuing a major in music should contact the department in their first year of study.
