The department offers a minor consisting of six one-semester departmental courses in music.
|MUSC 1100||INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC HISTORY||3|
|or MUSC 1101||OPERA: AN INTRODUCTION|
|MUSC 2145||MUSIC THEORY I||4|
|or MUSC 2146||MUSIC THEORY II|
|Select four additional courses which can be chosen from the remaining music offerings of the department 1|
Any course with the MUSC subject code may fulfill this requirement.
Music minors are also eligible to participate in the Vocal/Instrumental Instruction Program (MUSC 1261-MUSC 1268) but may only take up to four semesters of lessons for credit (one credit per semester on a pass/fail basis) to count as one of the required electives. Alternatively (but not in addition), they may receive one four credit elective equivalent by participating for four semesters in the faculty-led campus performance groups. As is the case for majors, at least two of the four semesters must be spent in the same ensemble, chosen from among the following:
- MUSC 1241-MUSC 1242 CONCERT CHOIR-LINCOLN CENTER
- MUSC 1243-MUSC 1244
- MUSC 1271-MUSC 1272 CONCERT BAND INTERNSHIP
- MUSC 1281-MUSC 1282
Other similar faculty-led ensembles:
- Or other approved organizations may count for the remaining semesters
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.
