Third 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.

Third Year 2013-2014

B.Mus./B.Ed. must take these music core courses.
