University of King's College

Pursue a Bachelor of Music degree that incorporates the Foundation Year Programme into the first-year curriculum, and you’ll gain with a deeper understanding of music as a social phenomenon and vector of philosophical, psychological and cultural expression. You can also pursue a Bachelor of Arts with a major in music, or combine an interest in music with another subject, such as theatre.

FYP counts for four of your five first year credits with a preparatory music credit rounding out your course load.

After first year, you will take classes at King’s and at Dalhousie’s Fountain School of Performing Arts.

Bachelor of Music students will choose one of the following concentrations:

  • General studies
  • Composition
  • Musicology
  • Performance

Non-music majors can take elective classes to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of music.
