The Minor in Classical Music is a specialised programme offered for students wishing to develop their historical, analytical and stylistic knowledge of western classical music from the 16th to 21st centuries.
Students will acquire a high level of musical literacy as they undertake cumulative papers in the materials of music, as well as papers focusing on the social and historical and stylistic aspects of music.
The programme has the flexibility to encompass a range of other subjects, while at the same time developing skills aimed at a deep intellectual and artistic engagement with classical music.
