Music Minor in the Honors Program

The music honors minor curriculum normally includes the following components. Every student’s program is subject to approval by music faculty, taking into consideration the student's background and goals. We welcome individualized proposals, which are evaluated and approved on the basis of consultations with the music faculty. We emphasize the importance of depth and mastery of musical skills and understanding, and we also recognize the value of studying the diversity of musical cultures.
