Second Year B.Mus./B.Ed

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.

Second Year

B.Mus./B.Ed. must take these music core courses in Year 2.

It is wise to defer at least one of your core musicology courses in Year 3 because you must have room in Year 2 for MUSC 273/274 and 3.0 - 6.0 in P/J or I/S preparation courses.

Not all 180 series courses are offered in a single year; check the current SOLUS course listings for offerings in your year.

The 280s are new.  They provide you with more experience on a secondary instrument; however, the focus is on organizing teaching and materials in a high school setting.  If your major instrument is clarinet, you may seek permission to take MUSC 281* without taking MUSC 181*; if your major is trumpet, you may seek permission to take MUSC 283* without MUSC 183*.
