The minor in songwriting is available to majors in all disciplines at SMU who are interested in developing basic skills as composers, lyricists and/or recording artists. The program allows students to pursue a lyric, music or production emphasis within the field of songwriting. The plan includes a repeatable class in which songs are written, produced, performed and recorded.
A minimum grade of C- is required in all courses specified in the minor. Students must retake courses in which a grade below C- is received. A course may be repeated only once.
