Music (Minor)

Program Description

The minor in Music is designed for students who want to explore music in combination with other fields taught at NYU Abu Dhabi, or who wish to sustain their involvement with music based on their music practice before coming to NYU Abu Dhabi. The minor requires four to six courses totaling 16 credits: two 4-credit courses from the courses required for music majors and 8 music elective credits, which may be satisfied by up to four 2-credit performance or composition courses. Students doing a minor in Music should build a portfolio of work (musical compositions, recordings of recitals; essays, musical software, or a combination of these) demonstrating achievements from their course work and other campus musical activities. The portfolio is reviewed by the music faculty when the 16-credit minor is completed.
