School of Music > Academics > Minors, Double Degrees & Double Majors > For DePaul School of Music Students
We recognize that DePaul School of Music students often have a variety interests
and talents. Each of our degrees includes a core of liberal studies courses in
which students may explore fields outside of music. For students who would like
to gain a deeper understanding of subjects outside of music or of two subjects
within the School of Music, we offer minors, double majors, and double degrees.
Students pursuing a major within the School of Music may
also pursue a minor in a subject outside of music. This is possible with any
minor offered by the Driehaus College of Business, College of Communication, Jarvis College of Computing and Digital Media, College of Education, College of
Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, or College of Science and Health. A music degree
with an additional minor will typically be earned in four years.
Applicants interested in pursuing a minor should select the
School of Music and their intended music major in the application. The minor
will be added during orientation, prior to beginning classes.
For more information about minors offered at DePaul, visit the college/school website which houses the minor of interest.
Students may simultaneously pursue a major in music and a
major in an area outside of the School of Music. This applies to any degree
within the Driehaus College of Business, College of Communication, Jarvis College of
Computing and Digital Media, College of Education, College of Liberal Arts and
Social Sciences, or College of Science and Health. A double degree may be
earned in five years with credits earned through summer school, IB, advanced
placement, and/or transfer credits.
Applicants interested in pursuing a double degree should
select the School of Music and their intended music major in the application.
After being admitted to the School of Music, students may add a second degree
during orientation. There is not a separate application process to be admitted
into a dual degree program.
For more information about the majors offered outside the
School of Music, see the Academics Page.
School of Music students may pursue a double major in any two
of the seven programs we offer. These include Performance, Jazz Studies, Music
Education, Composition, Sound Recording Technology, Performing Arts Management,
and a Bachelor of Arts in Music. Double majors in music will typically be
earned in five years.
Applicants interested in pursuing a double major should
select one major in the application and submit. To add the second major, email firstname.lastname@example.org to copy your submitted application and update the second major.
