Minor Programs

Minor in Music

Students who intend to make music studies a significant part of their course work at Tufts may choose the disciplinary minor in music. To fulfill the music minor requirements, students may take a broad range of courses or may choose a cluster of courses in a focused area of musical study. The undergraduate minor in music requires a minimum of six courses (five credits). At least two courses must be at the 100 level; the other courses may be chosen from 100-level courses or from the MUS 21–67 range. Two semesters in instrumental and/or vocal study (MUS 153-01 and/or 02, or MUS 195) are required, but no more than 1.0 credit of private lessons may count towards the minor. Furthermore, students minoring in music must enroll in a performing ensemble course (MUS 69–96) for two semesters, but these credits cannot count toward the minor. After consultation with a member of the full-time music faculty for advice on a suggested program of study, students should complete the minor declaration form.
