Drawing from the rich interactions between sound and the visual arts, our listening-directed courses are informed by acoustics, cymatics, phonetics, multi-sensory cognition, time and memory, sonification, sound design, soundscapes, music, performance, the language arts, and cultural studies. Through liberal arts and studio electives, the minor supports students pursuing historical, conceptual, and technical engagement with sound in their studio major. 

The Sound Minor requires 16-credit hours. Students in any major can elect to complete the minor with careful course planning.


Course descriptions and major requirements coming soon.

Sound is never alone—it’s always mingling with images, materials, languages and anything that moves.
