FAQ

Can an undergraduate student who is not majoring in music in Steinhardt complete a music "minor" in Steinhardt?

Yes, non-Steinhardt music majors can complete a music minor in Steinhardt's Department of Music and Performing Arts. The music minor consists of eight "core" courses - two courses each in (1) Music Theory, (2) Music History, (3) Aural Comprehension, and (4) Keyboard Skills - as well as other music academic courses and private lessons and participation in ensembles.

However, Steinhardt does not offer program-specific minors. Consequently, we do not offer a "minor" in music performance, music composition, music business, music technology, or music education.

For more information, please click on "Academics" in this web site and scroll down to the bottom to "Music Minor." In addition, please feel free to contact our department's coordinator of the music minor, Dr. Paul Horan at pgh1@nyu.edu or 212-998-5771.
