Fourth Year B.Mus./B.Ed. 2013/14

This program is highly specialized. In order for a student to complete it on time, s/he must focus on music education requirements in second and third year.  This means some music courses are taken in a different year of study than would be the case for a student taking only the B.Mus. degree. It is possible to complete all remaining degree requirements in Fourth year.

Fourth Year 2013-2014 

Complete any outstanding MUSC core requirements.

Complete any outstanding P/J breadth or I/S second teaching subject requirements.

Be sure to take two to four semester courses outside of music in your second teaching subject. Be sure you have taken Psychology.

Make sure you have the right number of units to graduate, including 300+ courses.

Music Education

Ensure that you have 24.0 - 30.0 Music Education units within your BMUS degree.

Take one of these three, if you have not taken two, or substitute a MUSC 280s for the second MUSC 180:

181* A Woodwind Techniques & Methods Craig
183* A Brass Techniques & Methods Tremblay
187* A Percussion Techniques & Methods Runions

If you have not taken MUSC 270 Conducting, do so!
If you have not taken MUSC 336, ensure that you take MUSC 332.
Ensure that you have 6.0 units in 400 level music education.

The MUSC  280s series is new to Queen’s, but most valuable for music educators at the I/S level because the focus is on teaching these instruments in the classroom.
