Undergraduate Degrees

Students will follow the curriculum of the year for which they were admitted to the program. Should requirements change in any given year, students complete either the curriculum under which they were admitted in its entirety, or the new curriculum in its entirety, but not a combination of both.

The Artist and Scholar Honors Program is designed to cultivate and develop the abilities of gifted students with outstanding artistic or intellectual promise. By allowing a small number of selected undergraduate students to design their own courses of study in close consultation with faculty advisors, the program makes the resources of the SMTD accessible in ways normally unavailable to degree-pursuing students.

A student considered for the Artist and Scholar Honors Program must be nominated by a department chair with the concurrence of the department(s) or program(s) of the intended area(s) of focus. Students will normally be identified for this recognition during the sophomore year and at the time of nomination, must have at least a 3.5 GPA. The nomination procedure requires the following: a letter of nomination from a department Chair; a letter of concurrence of the department (or program) of the intended area of focus; another document from the student indicating the preference of advisor; a proposal to the Council of Departmental Representatives. Upon the recommendation of the faculty advisor and the Dean, the Council of Departmental Representatives is authorized to name students to the Artist and Scholar Honors Program. A faculty mentor will be appointed to serve as advisor and to work with the Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs in responding to unusual curricular or instructional needs of the Honors student. The Council will also appoint four members of the faculty, representing both artists and scholars, to oversee the program as well as student progress. These faculty may also advise students in the program, and the Honors Council will also serve as a cross-departmental liaison for Honors students.

An Artist and Scholar Honors Program student must complete the Core Curriculum by election, exemption, or waiver. Apart from that, the student designs the balance of the curriculum in consultation with his or her advisor. At the end of each term, or immediately after a term’s work is reported on an updated transcript, the faculty advisor of an Honors Program student will submit a statement to the Honors Council concerning the student’s progress. On the basis of these statements, the Honors Council will recommend to the Council of Departmental Representatives that the Honors Program status of the student be renewed or revoked.

Students who are not initially admitted to U-M as a dual degree student may apply to a dual degree program with another academic unit beginning in the Fall term of the Sophomore year. Some programs may require a separate application and admissions process prior to declaring a dual degree.

All dual degree students will have an academic advisor in both units and must earn both degrees simultaneously upon graduation. Dual degree programs require a minimum of 150 credits for graduation unless otherwise specified.

Recognized dual degree programs include:

SMTD and Penny Stamps School of Art and Design
SMTD and Ross School of Business
SMTD and College of Engineering
SMTD and School of Information
SMTD and School of Kinesiology
SMTD and College of Literature, Science and Arts (LSA)
