Music (Classical) programme from Bishop’s University, covers the same academic territory as most B.Mus. degrees, and our B.A. Honours has been accepted by graduate programs across Canada and in the U.S. as equivalent to a B.Mus. degree. You will quickly discover that the core courses offered at Bishop’s in Music are the same as those in all other institutions. 


Well, some Bishop’s graduates have pursued careers as scholars, teachers, arts administrators, and composers, as well as performers, both classical and pop. Others have taken their B.A. and gone in a completely different direction. Some students just want to pursue their love of music, without making it a career. So why not major in music, as well as another subject?
