Minor Programs in Music

No audition is required to participate in either of our minor programs.


Music Minor

The Music Minor program requires only 15 credit hours in music. This can be an excellent way for students in other majors to pursue their passion for music and continue their involvement from high school during their undergraduate experience. Music minors may choose to participate in ensembles, take music history and theory courses, and/or take private lessons (with instructor permission).

Be advised that the Music Minor requires at least one course in Music Theory. The Music, Media and Enterprise Minor does not require a theory course.

The Music, Media and Enterprise Minor


Students working in recording studio

The Music, Media and Enterprise Minor is open to students in any major program and draws students from all across campus — marketing, finance, logistics, strategic communications, economics, electrical engineering, journalism and more.

The minor offers a full complement of courses, including entrepreneurship, music production, media economics, music cultures of the world, media ethics, media entertainment and communications law. The core classes give everyone a solid foundation in music business and entrepreneurship and the electives allow everyone to customize the program — along with their major studies — to achieve their professional ambitions.

Students examine music creation, distribution and the rapidly-evolving technologies that make them possible. They graduate with an understanding of the role and value of music in the marketplace and society, and how to critically analyze and create opportunities in music production and promotion. Program graduates work for record labels, production and marketing companies, concert producers and venues, and as independent entrepreneurs.
