The Minor also allows students who are considering majoring in Music the opportunity to begin serious study within the Department of Music at UMass Dartmouth.

Students who demonstrate a special ability or interest may pursue an individualized program of study with the approval of the full music faculty.  Procedures for individualized study must first be discussed with the Department Chair of the Department of Music.
