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

|204||A||Baroque & Classical Music|

You should take MUSC 332* because it is a prerequisite to 400-level music education courses and you should try to take one more from this group:

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*.
