Information About Our Minors
Music Tech Minor: Music tech minors take the complete music technology sequence designed for the majors without the many additional music-specific courses. It compliments other digital majors like graphic design, marketing, communications, web design, technical theater, etc. and can be added to a music education major to round out their knowledge base.
Music Therapy: We have helped prepare several students for graduate studies in music therapy. Oftentimes students will major in music education with a minor in psychology, or double major in music (BA) and psychology.
