The Musicology minor is designed for students who seek to combine the humanistic study of music with a major concentration in another area. The minor is a sequence of seven academic courses, of which two must be lower division or GE courses in Musicology, two must be upper division courses in Musicology, and three more can be chosen from selected upper division offerings in Ethnomusicology, Music, and Musicology. There is no performance requirement for the Musicology minor.
