Specialize in composition, music education, performance, or sonic arts. Join peers committed to deepening the mastery of their chosen disciplines.
Master of Music (MMus), thesis/performance based
Thesis-based programs require that you pursue independent and original research culminating in a thesis. You will work under the supervision of a faculty member whose expertise matches your research area.
Complete a Master of Music at the University of Calgary while participating in the Advanced Performance Program at Mount Royal Conservatory
Through a unique collaborative agreement, students interested in an enhanced performance-focused program can complete a BMus or MMus and the APP simultaneously. Academic courses are completed at UCalgary and students study an instrument or voice with either an MRU Conservatory or UCalgary instructor. Weekly masterclasses, chamber music, recitals, and other requirements are organized so that degree/APP requirements are not duplicated.
Interested students must audition and meet the admission requirements of both institutions. UCalgary auditions typically take place in late February/early March for the BMUS, in February for the MMUS.
