Courses in Music are intended for students who have a particular interest in studying music as a complement to their chosen program. While these courses do not provide a major in Music, the College does offer courses in music history, appreciation, and performance. Additionally, qualified students may take private instruction in performance through an independent study with Divisional approval (an additional charge may be applicable for this instruction).
Students may also elect to take the Music Minor, which was designed to promote musical knowledge and literacy as a component of interdisciplinary scholarship, and to provide framework for creative opportunities for students with musical skills already at intermediate level. The Music Minor requires 18 credits distributed among three areas of study: Music Scholarship (6-9 credits), Musicianship (3-9) and Creative Production (3-6). In this way, students can customize the minor to complement or expand their interests and abilities.
Through our articulation agreement with Hunter College, MMC students may take courses during the fall and spring semesters at Hunter as part of their regular MMC course load. The Hunter Music department offers both a BA and MA in Music and many of their courses are open to MMC students. For further information and current offerings at Hunter, inquire in the Fine & Performing Arts Divisional Office.
