            A minimum of seven credits must be chosen from the approved list of music history, music theory, and music literature courses. As many as nine credits may be chosen from the approved list of applied (performing) music lessons and ensembles. However, the applied music courses are optional and are not required for the minor. These remaining nine credits can be selected from either or both of the two categories.

Contact the Associate Dean in the Esther Boyer College of Music for the list of approved courses.
