General Information Go to top of document
Administrative Assistant Natalie Fedj 905-688-5550, extension 3817 Thistle 149B brocku.ca/music The goal of the Department of Music, part of the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts, is to prepare students for their chosen musical career and to produce critically aware musicians with a broadly based musical education. The Department of Music offers four-year programs of study leading to a Bachelor of Music (BMus) Honours, a Bachelor of Arts (BA) Honours in Music, a BA with Major Music and a Pass BA degree program. Students may also pursue a combined major in Music. Students take core courses in music history, theory, general musicianship and choral ensemble. Students in the BMus program must choose one principal study in applied music (instrumental or vocal lessons). Lessons (classical only) are offered in piano, pipe organ, voice, guitar and all orchestral and concert band instruments. If applied music is not taken in successive years, students must re-audition before proceeding to the next year of applied music. In Year-3 and Year-4, students may pursue specialized interests in theory, musicology, composition and applied music. Students may elect to write an Honours thesis. Students' progress will be evaluated annually. Students must achieve a minimum of 60 percent in all MUSI required courses and a minimum 70 percent major average to continue in the BMus program. Any student who does not meet these requirements will be placed in the BA with Major program. To re-declare to BMus, a student must upgrade any required MUSI course in which the minimum average was not achieved, and raise their major average to 70 percent. Otherwise students may continue in the BA with Major program. The requirement for graduation with a BMus or BA (Honours) is a minimum 70 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent non-major average. The requirement for graduation with a BA with Major is a minimum 60 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent overall average.
