The undergraduate minor in music requires a minimum of 15 s.h. in music courses, including 12 s.h. earned in courses considered upper level for the minor (music courses numbered 3000 or above) and 8 s.h. taken at the University of Iowa. Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in all courses for the minor and in all UI courses for the minor. Course work for the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass.
Work for the minor must include one music theory course, one music history course, and 3 s.h. of performance course work (applied instruction or ensembles).
