Music Theory (MTY)

The minor in Music Theory is designed to provide undergraduate students with a specialized knowledge in musicianship and the theory of music in addition to its history. It is particularly well-suited to students interested in honing their skills as musicians and offers more rigorous training in music analysis than the general track. Coursework includes an introduction to the study of music, courses in musicianship, music theory, only two semesters in a performance ensemble, and a choice of courses on specialized topics, including the study of popular musics, non-western musical traditions, music and gender, music technology, and the works of individual composers.
