Music Composition

For students who would like to study composition and are not necessarily interested in the major, Crane offers a Minor in Composition for qualified music majors. Students wishing to add this minor either submit a sample of their work to the composition faculty or, after taking either MUCT 301 Composition I or MUCT 411 Computer Music composition, apply to enter the program based on the projects written for those courses. Students in the composition minor will take courses in acoustic and computer music composition, orchestration, music theory, and counterpoint.
