PhD Minors for Students Outside the Jacobs School of Music

Minors in music for doctoral students outside the Jacobs School of Music may be taken within one of the established departments of the Jacobs School of Music or as an individualized minor taken in more than one area. No general entrance examinations are required, but the director of graduate studies may require entering proficiency examinations. All minors except the individualized minor require the prior approval of the department chair. Minors, including the individualized minor, require approval by the director of graduate studies, who also determines prerequisites, minimum requirements, and the nature of any qualifying examinations. A minor in a performance area requires acceptance into a faculty studio and may require a formal departmental audition. No transfer credits will be accepted toward a music minor.
