Apply to be a part of the music

The Music Minor

Students pursuing a major outside of the School of Music are invited to apply and audition to add a music minor to their studies. The minor in music allows students to dive into the theory, application, and practice of music alongside other students pursuing all kinds of majors across the University. Undergraduate students from any college or department at the University of Minnesota who are admitted to the music minor program may deepen their knowledge of music through this minor, creating a vibrant and diverse cohort of students practicing and learning together.

Upon admission to the program, music minors will pursue private instruction on their primary instrument while participating in the major ensemble, and begin to explore tonal music and sight-reading practices before diving into the history and culture of music. View minor course requirements.
