Are you passionate about music? Do you want to reconnect with musical studies in a way that complements your existing major outside of music? Do you envision making music a part of your future career portfolio? If so, the new Music Minor program may be a perfect option for you!

The College of Music offers a 19-credit Music Minor for students across the CU Boulder campus. The Music Minor is open to all students in good academic standing who have a sincere interest in making music a part of their university education, regardless of prior experience levels or backgrounds.

Students pursuing the Music Minor are required to complete a basic music theory course and participate in at least one music ensemble. Beyond that, students may choose from a variety of course options focused on creating or making music, as well as appreciating and thinking about music in relation to historical or sociocultural issues. Many elective course options for the Music Minor have been approved for the Arts & Sciences General Education Requirements. Grades in courses applied to the Music Minor must be a C- or higher. View the degree checklist to start planning your minor.
