Music Theory Minor

The minor in music theory is available only to music majors. The intent is to offer significant study in music theory as a secondary area for a student already involved in the study of music. It can be combined with any music area except composition, but is particularly useful for majors in performance who are interested in extending their knowledge of music theory to support their performance activities or in expanding their compositional interests. It consists of seven courses including upper division study in music analysis, counterpoint, orchestration and computer music.

Minor Requirements

In order to earn a minor in music theory, students must complete a minimum of 22 units and 7 courses with a Pacific minor grade point average of 2.0. For specific course requirements, please refer to the University's General Catalog (page 189 of the 2011-2012 catalog).
