About the Faculty of Music

Laurier’s renowned Faculty of Music is dedicated to fostering artistic and scholarly development of the highest calibre and to providing a creative environment for student success.

We offer two undergraduate programs: a Bachelor of Music and a Bachelor of Music Therapy, and two graduate programs: a Master of Music Therapy and a Master of Arts in Community Music.

The generous scope of our Bachelor of Music program allows for a Performance specialization, which provides a strong base for those who wish to become professional performers, while our Music Theory, Music Education, Music History, Comprehensive and Composition/Contemporary Music specializations establish a secure knowledge from which you can build an innovative career.

Our Bachelor of Music Therapy program, the only one in Ontario, teaches you the musical and therapeutic process for a variety of client populations.

We limit enrolment to 350-400 undergraduate students – a number that is small enough to give you ready access to your instructors, yet large enough to have a full symphony orchestra, three choirs, wind orchestra, an opera program and baroque, wind, jazz, percussion, contemporary and other music ensembles.
