This minor is an interdisciplinary minor designed to offer students an examination of music and its intersections with a broad range of cultural topics. Key issues of exploration include: gender studies, global studies, the humanities (English, history, sociology), politics, religious studies and the natural sciences. All courses comprise interdisciplinary themes in order to investigate how music and society reflect common ideologies, problems and solutions. This course of study challenges students to think about the relationships between the fine arts and the humanities while comparing different perspectives on social interaction. It also complements existing majors across the undergraduate curriculum by offering a deeper survey of issues that affect human identity and the environment we inhabit.

No grade below a C- in a course required for the minor will count towards satisfying requirements. The mandatory number of credits for fulfilling a minor in this area is 18 credits, six of which may be applied from the university’s Core Curriculum.
