MUSC 177 is the normal prerequisite for MUSC 270 or MUSC 271. MUSC 111 qualifies as the non-major prerequisite for MUSC 270 or MUSC 271. Although MUSC 111 is not part of the music minor curriculum, it satisfies GEC objectives 4 and 5. If the student does not complete MUSC 111, MUSC 177 must be taken.
