Master of Music

The Department of Music offers programs in music theory, conducting, and performance leading to a Master of Music (M.Mus.) and in musicology leading to a Master of Arts (MA) degree.

The Master of Music in Performance is available for performers in piano, collaborative piano, voice, strings, brass, or woodwinds. The conducting M.Mus. in Performance may be completed with an emphasis in choral conducting or wind band conducting. This program requires 24 credit units and is project-based, culminating in a final recital in the area of study.

The M.Mus. program in music theory and the MA program in musicology require 15 credit units plus a thesis. Certain areas of concentration also include the successful completion of a comprehensive examination and a foreign language(s). The normal time for completion is two years, including a one-year residency.

A meaningful graduate experience is enhanced by participating in professional activities. Toward that end, the University of Saskatchewan offers the annual Fine Arts Research Lecture Series in Music, providing a forum for the exchange of scholarly ideas through the presentation of scholarly research in formal papers and lecture recitals prepared by both members of the Department of Music and guests from the national and international scholarly community.

Program type: Project and/or thesis
