Master of Arts (M.A.) Music: Music Education (Thesis) (45 credits)

Offered by: Music     Degree: Master of Arts

Program Requirements

The M.A. in Music; Music Education provides an opportunity for studio- and classroom-based teachers and music educators working in other community settings, to explore current issues in music education and to implement their own research studies. Seminars introduce foundations of a range of research methodologies and critical thinking skills. The thesis can be submitted in one of two formats: in-depth monograph-style thesis, or a research-paper-based thesis. Students who prefer to write an in-depth monograph-style thesis will take MUGS 684 Masters Thesis Research 2 as a complementary course. Students who prefer to write a research-paper-based thesis will take two more seminars.

Students admitted to the M.A. in Music; Music Education program who have undergraduate degrees other than the B.Mus.; Minor in Music Education from McGill University, may be required to successfully complete one or more undergraduate course(s) before completion of the Master’s program.
