The Setnor School of Music offers two minors for non- music majors who wish to learn about the creative, business, and legal aspects of the music industry. To enroll in either music industry minor, students must apply to the chair of the music industry program. Auditions for private lessons and ensembles may be required for acceptance into Minor Plan II. The minor program is highly competitive, with a limited number of spaces, and application is encouraged before the beginning of the sophomore year and is required before the beginning of the junior year.
