Music Credit Options for Students in Other Faculties
The Schulich School of Music offers three groups of courses that may be taken for credit by students in other faculties.
The first group consists of Music Literature and Theory courses especially designed for students from other faculties who may not have taken formal studies in music but who wish to take elective courses in the cultural, historical, and theoretical aspects of music. These courses are generally offered with a MUAR prefix. Students enrolled in a B.Mus. or L.Mus. program cannot take MUAR courses and apply them as earned credits towards their program.
The second group is the sequence of courses in music theory, musicianship, music history, and music technology that are part of a minor offered by the Schulich School of Music undergraduate curriculum. Non-music students enrolled in a particular stream of a music minor have registration priority in that stream's respective courses, providing they have completed all the necessary prerequisites.
The third group of courses consists of selected music ensembles open, by audition, to students in other faculties.
For further details on these courses, please see Faculty of Arts > Undergraduate > Browse Academic Units & Programs > Music (MUAR). Other music courses may be taken by qualified students from other faculties providing they obtain permission from the relevant department in the Schulich School of Music and from an academic adviser or the Associate Dean of their own faculty.
