Music Minor (M)

The CUW Music Department contributes to the spiritual, artistic, cultural, academic, and co-curricular life aspects of campus life at the University. In doing so, the faculty is committed to blending talent and fellowship to the highest degrees of professional artistry in praise of the Lord's name. We additionally hope to impact our surrounding community while fulfilling our mission. 

For students of any other School of Arts and Sciences major, a music minor can be attained with 24 music credits. There is no audition for the minor. For non-music major students, participation in music ensembles and productions will satisfy the creative arts component of both the core and the music minor.
