A Bachelor of Arts in Music Industry at Saint Mary's University of Minnesota combines the technical training of music technology and business with the advantages of the liberal arts, resulting in a perfect blend of curriculum.


The Music Industry program offered by Saint Mary's University of Minnesota exposes students to a curricular structure that reflects the needs of today's musician in an ever-changing, high-tech world. Within the major, students have the flexibility to choose either a technology or a business emphasis and the opportunity to pursue off-campus music industry internships at organizations like: Universal Music Group, Minnesota Public Radio, Warner, Elektra Asylum Records, KNXR Studies, Schmitt Music, and Wenger Music Corp.

There's no question that students reap the benefit of our strong industry connections, including a professional partnership with Sound Strations Studios in La Crosse, WI, owned and operated by adjunct faculty and Grammy Award winner, Brett Huus.
