Minor in Music

The SMTD minor in Music welcomes all non-SMTD enrolled students with an interest in music creativity and performance, from any degree program on campus. This 15-credit minor is especially flexible and allows students to pursue their interests and curiosities to grow as musicians and thinkers in the art of music.

U-M students who participate in for-credit ensembles, such as the Campus Symphony Orchestra, University Choir, or Michigan Marching Band, will find the minor in Music especially attractive. Your ensemble credits all count towards the minor, and often just two or three additional classes are enough to add an extra credential to your degree transcript.

The SMTD minor in Music is not open to students currently enrolled in an SMTD degree program.
