The department offers a minor consisting of six one-semester departmental courses in music.
|MUSC 1100||Introduction to Music History 1||3|
|MUSC 2145||Music Theory I 2||4|
|Select four additional courses 3||16|
Students with advanced proficiency may, with advisor permission, fulfill this requirement with MUSC 2146 Music Theory II.
Music minors are also eligible to participate in the Private Vocal/Instrumental Instruction or Music Ensemble programs (see the music major page for options), but may only take up to four semesters/sections for credit (one credit each, on a pass/fail basis). The four one-credit semesters/sections of lessons or ensemble may replace a single four-credit music elective.
Minors must enroll in one-credit sections of lessons and ensembles in order to qualify for course credit toward the minor.
Minors who wish to continue beyond four semesters/sections should enroll, beginning with their fifth semester/section, in zero-credit sections of lessons. Minors who do not intend to complete the four one-credit courses should only enroll in zero-credit sections.
Students will be charged the cost of lessons; some ensembles carry lab fees. Applicable fees/rates are published on the music department website.
The minor in music is available at Fordham College at Rose Hill and Fordham College at Lincoln Center. Students in Fordham's School of Professional and Continuing Studies may minor in music only if they receive the approval of their advising dean and/or department, and their schedules are sufficiently flexible to permit them to take day courses at the Rose Hill or Lincoln Center campuses.
