Admission Requirements

Prerequisites:*These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    Students entering the Master of Music (MMus) degree program will ordinarily hold a music degree comparable to the degree Bachelor of Music offered by the University of Regina. Bachelor of Music Education students accepted to the Master of Music program are normally required to complete additional undergraduate music courses, and to do so by the end of the first semester of graduate study. Applicants for the MMus in Performance degree program (instrumental or vocal) will perform an in- person audition arranged through the department head. Only applicants from outside Canada and the U.S. may be considered on the basis of an unedited DVD, certified to be the performance of the applicant, in place of an in-person audition (an audio recording alone is not acceptable). Applicants should be prepared to perform at the audition the equivalent of an entire senior undergraduate recital, from which the audition panel will choose selections of a least one-half hour in duration. Applicants for the MMus in Composition degree program are to submit recent compositions for evaluation. Vocalists are to have acceptable singing ability in French, Italian and German as well as English. Applicants for the MMus in Conducting degree program are to submit a DVD recording of approximately 30 to 45 minutes of unedited rehearsal and performance, including at least 20 minutes of consecutive rehearsal. The camera should be positioned to show the upper body from a frontal view. Written diagnostic examinations in music theory and history are required prior to beginning the program. Entering students scoring below a certain level will be required to do remedial work. Remedial work of more than two semesters is not permitted.
