The minor is designed to allow participation by students with minimal formal musical training. The coursework allows students to explore the connections between music and consciousness and between vibration, mindfulness, and well-being.
Admission to the Music for Well-Being minor is by interview with the minor coordinator.
University policy states that students must earn 8 distinct credits that are not used for their major toward their minor, with a minimum grade of 2.00 earned in all courses applied to the minor. For policies governing all minors, see AP.5.3.4 Minors.
