Major/Minor Image

Music students get to pursue their passion in music while growing in other areas of interest.

Why should I study music?

Core courses in this minor will complement many other majors. The fundamental skills you learn can apply to several different careers.

What can I do with this degree?

Our graduates integrate their music minor with their major of study and continue on to careers in:

  • IT
  • Medicine
  • Psychology
  • Education
  • Music Therapy
  • And more!

What skills will I develop?

  • Music theory fundamentals
  • Principles of conducting
  • Musical analysis
  • Presentation skills

You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in the R.E.A.L. Experience—a program specifically designed to help you gain the relevant, hands-on experience employers desire—so that when you graduate, you’ll be as impressive in practice as you are on paper.

What unique experiences or opportunities will I have?

Musical Tours: Participate in a music group that travels across the United States and abroad. Previous locations have included Singapore, Malaysia, Poland, Sweden, France, and more.

Festival of Christmas: Multiple music groups participate in this popular, large musical festival every year. You'll perform in Benson Great Hall, a premier performance venue with over 1,700 seats.

Students have won a national composition prize and a statewide vocal competition.
