The minor in music serves a wide variety of needs among the students who elect it. Those who have studied voice or an instrument through their high school years may pursue that study at a more advanced level. Participants in bands, orchestras, and choirs want to continue that activity at a higher level. Some find the minor an important adjunct to other studies such as speech pathology and audiology, speech communication, or broadcasting. Those in very demanding majors build music into their lives as a balancing influence. Other students relate music studies to their major; a recent Schreyer Honors College History major did her thesis on song during the Civil War. Admission to the minor depends upon a successful performance audition. Minors enroll for the same sequence of performance levels as do the B.A. and B.S. Music majors. Each student registers for core courses in music theory, history, and performance. Students usually opt to focus on one of the three areas in their upper-level courses.
A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
