Program Description

Program Description

The Music Diploma is a full‐time, two‐year program.
The average course load, with electives, is 17 to 18 credits per semester. Students may not register for more than the maximum number of credits in their major without written permission from the Department Head of the School of Music and Dance. A minimum full‐time course load is 12 credits per term, but dropping below 14 credits requires approval from the Department Head of the School of Music and Dance. Normally, students taking fewer than 12 credits in a term will not be entitled to private instruction. In exceptional circumstances, students will be allowed to register for private instruction with fewer than 12 credits total. However, in order for such an exception to apply, the student must have previously completed all academic and skills‐course requirements for the term of private instruction in which they are registering. Note that the Music Diploma requires a minimum of 70 credits for graduation. Students select courses to complete their program from music electives and/or post‐secondary English. Students intending to continue their studies at a university are strongly advised to take two terms of post‐secondary English.
