The new MacEwan B.Mus. degree in Jazz and Contemporary Popular Music

In the highly competitive world of music, further education is crucial for a successful and lasting career. Combined with programming uniqueness and an overwhelming demand from students, MacEwan is now offering a new four-year music degree.

Grant MacEwan University's Music Program will offer a Bachelor of Music in Jazz and Contemporary Popular Music (B.Mus.) with first-year intake beginning in fall 2011. Applications will be accepted starting in October 2010.

The MacEwan B.Mus. degree is an academic degree that prepares students for the music profession and further studies at the graduate level. This degree is accredited by the Alberta Minister of Advanced Education and Technology on recommendation from the Campus Alberta Quality Council, and meets the standards of Canadian university music degree programs.

The MacEwan B.Mus. program offers three majors: Performance, Composition and General. Students in the General route may pursue one of two unique minors: Music Technology and Production or Music Career Management.

At MacEwan, students have the chance to study jazz and contemporary popular music including pop and rock, making it one of the few universities in Canada with this unique programming.

With the addition of the B.Mus. degree program, MacEwan will continue to offer its celebrated music diploma program. Students will have the choice to apply to either the diploma program (current intake of 90 students per year) or the degree program (proposed intake of 30 students per year).
