The minor in Music Studies provides the opportunity to conduct focused study on music theory, history and literature. The minor may also serve as an important adjunct to other studies such as speech pathology and audiology, speech communication, or broadcasting.
Some students choose to add the music studies minor as a balancing influence to coursework in their majors; others relate music studies directly to their major. For example, a recent Schreyer Honors College history major did her thesis on song during the Civil War.
You will register for core courses in music theory, history and literature, and then select a focus area for your upper-level courses.
Does this sound like you?
You have skills and an interest in music theory and music history and would like to continue playing or singing in ensembles while pursuing a degree outside music.
Sound right? Then Music Studies sounds like it could be right for you.
