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.

Recent grads have performed with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, The Minnesota Opera, The Banff Festival Orchestra, The Aspen Festival, The Oregon Bach Festival, and the nation’s service bands.
