Major/Minor Requirements

Declaring a Music Major or Minor

The Colorado College Music Major empasizes theory, performance and more. Students are encouraged to study music from a diverse array of critical perspectives. Majors have the option to direct their studies toward composition, musicology, ethnomusicology, performance and practical theory on their way to earning a Bachelor of Arts degree.

After declaring a major or minor in music, students are awarded full scholarship funding for one set of private lessons on the instrument of their choice and one-half scholarship funding for a second set of lessons. Music majors are required to attend ten department-approved concerts per semester; minors must attend five approved concerts per semester.

Senior Music Majors must take MU435 Senior Seminar and complete a Senior Capstone Project in their chosen emphasis. A senior recital and/or presentation satisfies this requirement. Link to the full listing of requirements at the right.
