Description A taught graduate degree program at the Faculty of Music was inaugurated in 1954. The Faculty of Music currently offers graduate degrees in five areas of concentration and fosters the institutional alliance of all areas of advanced music study. In addition to our longstanding graduate degrees in the areas of composition, music education, and musicology, we have recently introduced master’s and doctoral degree specialisations in ethnomusicology as well as a doctoral degree in performance. Although music theory is not offered as a named degree specialisation, students in this field of study are welcome to enroll in our musicology degree programs. Graduates from all areas of our program occupy leading positions in music departments across Canada and around the world.
