Welcome Music Students

Everyone at the University Minnesota Duluth Department of Music is excited to see our music students back on campus this fall and to welcome our new music majors. While the operations of our department will definitely look much different this year, we planned and will work to ensure the high-quality learning experience students at the UMD Department of Music are accustomed to, while also protecting the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff.

This page is intended to serve as the starting point for information you need for your safety and the success of the approaching academic year. It will regularly be updated as we receive new information.

Please familiarize yourself with our Music Faculty & Staff Directory.
