ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS
In addition to the standard University of Prince Edward Island entrance requirements, candidates for the Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Music education will demonstrate technical proficiency, musical expression and learning potential on their instrument or voice.

A personal interview, audition, and diagnostic tests in theory and aural skills will be arranged prior to registration for each student wishing to enter a Music Program. An audition is not required for entrance into the BA Program with Major in Music.

Bachelor of Music

The Bachelor of Music Program is a four-year program (120 semester hours) designed to provide students with sufficient flexibility to reflect their interests. The first two years are common to the Bachelor of Music Education Program. During years three and four, students may focus on Theory, History, or Applied Music. Upon graduation, students may wish to continue studies at the graduate level in Theory and Composition, Music History, or Performance. Graduation with a Bachelor of Music will not qualify a student for music teacher certification on Prince Edward Island.

Bachelor of Music Education

Application Process
At the end of the second year of study, students wishing to complete the Bachelor of Music Education program must submit a letter of application to the Chair of the Music Department outlining why they consider the field of music education to be an appropriate career path, and why they feel they would be good teachers. The music education faculty will interview the applicants to determine their suitability for this program. Students must have an overall average of 70% and a music average of 75% in the second year of study and must maintain those minima in order to continue in the BMusEd program.

The Bachelor of Music Education Program is a fiveyear program (150 semester hours) designed to qualify graduates for the teaching of music as specialists in elementary and secondary school music. Upon the completion of this program, a student will qualify for a Prince Edward Island Teaching Certificate 5. Bachelor of Music Education students who wish to specialize in grades K-6 are advised, when choosing non-music electives, to select from a variety of areas. Bachelor of Music Education students who wish to specialize in grades 7-12 are advised, when choosing non-music electives, to elect an area in which they are prepared to continue at least to the 3000 level, to provide them with a second teaching area.

Bachelor of Arts with a Major in Music

The BA with a Major in Music Program is a four-year program (120 semester hours) designed for those who wish to study music in a more general Arts curriculum. As a general program, it will not prepare students for teaching music, but will prepare them for further study toward careers such as music librarian, musicology, music publishing, communications media, and sound recording.

REQUIREMENTS FOR A MINOR IN MUSIC
Students wishing to receive a Minor in Music must complete a total of twenty-one semester hours of music courses, selected from the following list (or others in consultation with the Chair), with at least nine semester hours at the 2000 level or above: Music 1130, 1140, 1150, 1170, 1230, 1240, 2130, 2140, 2150, 2170, 2230, 3150, 4120, 4220, or 4230.

Students should check with the Chair of the Department in which they are majoring to ensure that these courses may be counted as electives. Note: some of these courses are not offered every year.

Students interested in the Minor in Music are encouraged to contact the Music Department for course advisement. Those students wishing to register for Music 1130 (Music Theory) OR Music 1150 must take a diagnostic test to determine the level of learning support that might be needed prior to (or during) the course(s), and should contact the Music Department before 10 July to arrange an appropriate time to take the test.
