Major Music Education and Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) - Music Elementary and Secondary (137 credits)

Offered by: Integrated Studies in Ed     Degree: Bachelor of Education

Program Requirements

The Bachelor of Music (B.Mus.) - Major Music Education, when offered concurrently with the The Bachelor of Education - Major Music Elementary and Secondary, provides students with the opportunity to obtain a Bachelor of Music degree and a Bachelor of Education degree after the completion of 137 credits, normally five years (170 credits or six years for out-of-province students*). The Concurrent program combines academic studies in music, professional studies, and field experience. The two degrees are awarded during the same convocation period.

* Out-of-province students or those who have not completed Quebec CEGEP, French Baccalaureate, International Baccalaureate, or at least one year of university studies prior to commencing the Concurrent program.

To be admitted to the Concurrent program, students must satisfy the regular admission requirements of the Schulich School of Music and Faculty of Education. Normally, students will be admitted to both components of the Concurrent program simultaneously. Applicants who already hold a Bachelor of Music degree should apply to the Faculty of Education. Students who have completed 30 or more credits in a Bachelor of Music program, exclusive of the Freshman Year for out-of-province students, should apply for admission to the Concurrent program.

All applications for the Concurrent program are to be made to the Admissions Office of the Schulich School of Music.

The B.Mus. Major Music Education program in the Schulich School of Music focuses on the development of the prospective music educator as a musician. This is achieved not only through core music history, theory, musicianship, and performance courses but also through different instrumental, vocal, and conducting techniques courses. Laboratory experiences provide an opportunity to develop facility with basic music rehearsing/teaching techniques, with emphasis on the ability to diagnose and correct technical and musical problems. The B.Ed. Music Elementary and Secondary program in the Faculty of Education focuses on the development of the musician as an educator. This is achieved through courses in educational foundations, music pedagogy and pedagogical support, and a practicum component comprised of four field experiences and supporting professional seminars.

Students who decide to complete only a Bachelor of Music may transfer at any time into the Bachelor of Music, Faculty Program. Students who wish to complete only the Bachelor of Education Music program have the option of doing so after the successful completion of the first two years of the Concurrent program and MUIN 283 "BMus Concentration Final Examination" or equivalent. They would be required to complete 61 music credits, 6 elective credits, and 55 education credits from the program given below.

The components of the 137-credit Concurrent Bachelor of Music - Major Music Education and Bachelor of Education - Music Elementary and Secondary are as follows:
