Program of Study

The Minor in Music is designed specifically for those students with a strong interest in the study of music who are not able to make the full commitment to the major (see the Visual and Performing Arts, Music Option, B.A. ). The minor has been designed to give the student a strong background in music including music theory, history, performance and technology. The student will complete a select series of courses that will give him/her exposure to various genres of world music, intermediate level skills in music theory/performance, and basic skills in the application of music technology.


Note: Courses used to satisfy requirements of the minor may also be used to fulfill General Education requirements. Students may apply up to nine (9) units of transfer credit toward the minor. Students must earn a grade of C (2.0) or better in each course for the minor. At least twelve (12) units of coursework submitted for the minor must be completed at CSUSM. Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) majors may pursue this minor if their VPA track is different from music and nine (9) units are mutually exclusive, i.e., not double-counted for the major and minor.

Total (24 Units)
