Students must complete 30 credit hours at the U of IL prior to declaring a minor. Please see below for minor options for non-major and music major students.


NON-MUSIC MAJOR MINORS

MUSIC MINOR

The School of Music offers non-music majors an exposure to music through courses in musicology and ethnomusicology, music theory, music composition, music technology, jazz history and studies, and performance studies (through applied lessons and ensemble). The music minor is intended for students who wish to expand upon already obtained musical skills and previous study—not to be an introduction to music. For more information about requirements for the Music Minor, please visit the Academic Catalog.

To add the Music Minor: 

E-mail Lana Custer in Music Academic Affairs at lcuster@illinois.edu to set up an interview with Dr. Linda Moorhouse, Associate Director of the School of Music.

MUSIC THEATRE MINOR FOR PERFORMING ARTS

The Musical Theatre Minor is intended for students in the performing arts who are majoring in either dance or the acting concentration of the theatre major in the College of Fine and Applied Arts. These are individuals who wish to expand upon their performance skills in a related study, which has an emphasis in Musical Theatre.

This minor is not intended for students outside the College of Fine and Applied Arts.
