Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Colleges, Departments, and Programs

The Music minor is available to all UMass Dartmouth students who meet university and the Music Department’s entrance requirements. The program is designed for talented students who desire an opportunity to develop their musical abilities. It will also allow students who are seeking an eventual major in music to begin serious study in a challenging atmosphere.

Students demonstrating a special ability or interest may, with approval of the department chairperson and music advisor, develop individualized programs.

A minor must be completed at the time of the degree and will be so noted on the student’s transcript.  A student cannot be readmitted to the University to complete only a minor.
