Students who minor in music will take courses in theories of music in culture, American musical experience, and perform with music ensembles.

Minors are a secondary area of academic focus. Declaring a minor can be helpful if you are wanting a different area of study, but not declaring another major. You can minor in something that compliments your major, or something you find interesting!
