Minor in Music

A minor in music is designed for a broad understanding of the music discipline through the study of performance, music theory, and music literature. The program allows a student to investigate diverse areas of music within a flexible curricular framework.

A music minor requires a minimum of 18 credit hours of formal coursework from the University curriculum completed at Webster University (auditions required; see specific course requirements listed below). Courses used to fulfill a major may not also be used to fulfill a requirement for the music minor. 

The following apply to all minors:

  • A minor must be comprised of 18 credit hours taken at Webster University.
  • No course counted toward a major can also count toward a minor.
  • Students may have a major and a minor within the same department; they may not major and minor within the same area of emphasis.
  • Students must earn a grade of C- or better in any course they wish to apply toward a minor.
