A minor in music requires at least 23 credits. A student may not complete both a major and a minor in music. In meeting the requirements of this discipline-based minor, a student may not use more than nine credits that are also used to meet the requirements of another major or minor.

Credits taken in excess of these limits will be treated as repeats of the earliest unrepeated credit of each kind.

One credit is earned for a 45-minute private lesson and a minimum of five hours practice a week during fall and winter terms; a one-hour private lesson and a minimum of seven hours practice a week are required during the spring term.
