What can a music theory minor do for you?
Do you love music and want to understand it from an academic perspective?
Consider our music theory and literature minor—the perfect fit for someone passionate about music history, theory, and literature.
As a music theory and literature minor, you’ll take upper-level classes in the history, theory and literature of music without the requirement to participate in a musical ensemble.
The minor pairs nicely with any of our more than 60 academic programs.
And you’ll be part of a music department that is considered to be one of the best at any liberal arts college in the nation.
Music has been at the heart of Susquehanna since the university was founded more than 150 years ago, and our program attracts high-caliber students and faculty.
