Our current degree minors in music are for undergraduate students who have completed a minimum of 30 credit hours at the University of Illinois. Please see below for minor options for non-major and music major students.
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:
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.
