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 for credit (one credit per semester on a pass/fail basis). The four one-credit semesters of lessons or ensemble may replace a single four-credit music elective.

Music Minors should decide in advance if they intend to apply four sections of Private Vocal/Instrumental Instruction or Music Ensemble towards an elective, and then be sure to enroll in the one-credit sections of each (R01 or L01). 

Students who wish to continue beyond four semesters should enroll in the zero-credit sections (R00 or L00) of the respective Instruction or Ensemble courses at that time. Students who do not intend to complete the four one-credit courses should only enroll in zero-credit sections.

Lab fees apply for lessons and some ensembles may apply.

Availability

The minor in music is available at the Fordham College at Rose Hill and at Lincoln Center. Students in the Fordham School of Professional and Continuing Studies may minor in music only if their schedules are sufficiently flexible to permit them to take day courses at the Rose Hill and/or Lincoln Center campus.
