Music, Minor

Program Overview

Undergraduate students pursuing a major outside of music are invited to add a minor in music to their studies without passing an audition. 

For students who do not major or minor in music but want to participate in musical activities on campus, our many ensembles are open to all CWRU students (regardless of major), and we offer music lessons through the Joint Music Program with faculty from the Cleveland Institute of Music. 


The minor in music does not require an entrance audition. However, all students applying for music scholarships must submit a Music Arts Supplement with the Common Application. More information about the undergraduate admission and audition process is provided on the Department of Music Undergraduate Application Procedures webpage.
