About the Program

Any VCU student may declare a minor in music with approval from the Department of Music. The minor in music is comprised of 18 credits distributed among the areas of music history and theory, ensemble performance, private lessons and music electives. You’ll be taught by faculty who are leaders in their fields, and have regular access to acclaimed visiting artists who come here for concerts, masterclasses and clinics. A music faculty adviser counsels every student about the selection of appropriate courses based on the student’s competence and interest.
