Music Studies


This minor does not require prior musical experience or training. The Music Studies minor is intended for students who are interested in deepening their understanding and appreciation of different types of music. Along with two semesters of Music Literature, students choose electives ranging from music history, film music, church music, and other courses. A Music Studies minor may be useful for students majoring in other academic divisions who wish to combine a love of music in a creative way with professional fields such as journalism, business, radio/television/video, psychology or other areas.
