Queen's University: Faculty
Queen's University offers four
undergraduate degrees with concentrations in
The School of Music admits students into a
four-year program leading to the Bachelor of
Music degree, as described on the B.Mus. page.
Admission is based on an audition, and students
must also meet the minimum academic requirements
for admission to the University. Details on
how to apply and the
audition process are described
on the Prospective Students page.
For those students whose goal to be a music
educator has been chosen before they enter university,
the B.Mus. degree can be combined with a Bachelor
of Education. Admission to the five-year concurrent
B.Mus./B.Ed. program is based on an audition,
on a Personal Statement of Experience (evaluated
by the Faculty of Education) and on meeting
Queen's academic requirements. A student whose
application to the B.Mus/B.Ed. program is unsuccessful
will automatically be considered for the B.Mus.
Limestone Education Through
The Limestone Education through
the Arts Program is a full time, year-long
placement for students in grades 7 and 8. Students
study all subjects required in the Ontario
Curriculum through an integrated approach that
emphasizes arts-based activities and creative
expression. LEAP is taught by teachers with
backgrounds in the arts. Students participate
in regular, extended experiences that develop
their skills and interests in movement, drama,
visual arts and music.
This program is designed for students who
demonstrate a strong interest in the arts and
naturally gravitate to a variety of creative
and artistic activities. Candidates will be
assessed on demonstrated creative and expressive
ability in one or more of drama, music, visual
arts or movement, the ability to interact successfully
as a member of a team, and an academic standing
in all subjects that is at or near the standard
for the grade level.
The LEAP Program is offered at one
site, at Calvin Park Public School in Kingston.
