The Minor in Music is a 20 credit hour program for undergraduate students who are not music majors, but wish to enjoy music in the Boyer College as part of their Temple experience. It is offered through the Department of Music Studies. Students complete, or test out of, 5 credits in music theory for non-majors and then may select from an array of courses in music theory, music history, jazz, technology, private lessons or performance ensembles.

  • A cumulative grade point average of 2.0 in the minor is required as well as a minimum grade of C- in each course.
  • Courses cannot be used to meet minor requirements if already used to meet the requirements for a major or a different minor or certificate.
  • Courses for the minor must be completed prior to graduation; if completed, the minor will be recorded on the final transcript upon graduation.

Students should meet with a Music Studies advisor to determine the course of study.  Contact mstchair@temple.edu
