    Students admitted to the M.Mus. program must demonstrate knowledge of music theory and music history comparable to that of B.Mus. graduates of the Faculty. This will normally be assessed by diagnostic examinations administered by the Faculty prior to the first day of fall-semester classes. Appropriate review materials will be made available to students in advance of the diagnostic examinations.

    Incoming graduate students who do not achieve satisfactory results on any component of these diagnostic examinations may be required to undertake remediation. Such remediation will normally take the form of successful completion of undergraduate coursework in the Faculty, which will not count for credit toward the M.Mus.

    Please see the Graduate Theory Diagnostic (PDF) and Graduate Musicology Diagnostic (PDF) for details on suitable review materials.
