Program Information

School:University of Victoria
Faculty:Fine Arts
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op
Field of Study:Music Theory and Composition
Description:The composition section has a reputation for experimentation and innovation. The School attracts composition students from across Canada, the United States, and around the world.

Our faculty consists of accomplished composers involved in both the creation and research of music composition. Their works are performed at major festivals and concert venues both nationally and internationally.

The Co-op program connects students with paid, relevant work experience in their field of interest. Co-op students learn by doing. Here's how it works: co-op students alternate academic terms with work terms and graduate with up to one year of work experience in the real world, a network of valuable contacts and the skills to find a job that makes the best of their degree. Many co-op students find permanent employment with a former co-op employer.
