Admission requirements

The following are minimum requirements to be considered for entry into the Music Research (MA) program. Meeting these requirements does not guarantee acceptance into the program.

To be considered for admission into the Music Research (MA) program, applicants must normally hold a Bachelor of Music, a Bachelor of Arts with a major in music or a related degree with sufficient background in the content area (as determined by the Desautels Faculty of Music) from an accredited post-secondary institution recognized by the University of Manitoba.

In addition to the admission requirements described here, all applicants must meet the minimum admission and English language proficiency requirements of the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

Diagnostic Examinations

Students admitted to the Music Research (MA) program must demonstrate knowledge of music theory and music history comparable to that of BMus graduates of the Desautels Faculty of Music. This will normally be assessed by diagnostic examinations administered in the week preceding the first week of classes in the Fall semester. Appropriate review materials will be made available to students in advance of the diagnostic examinations. Examinations will be evaluated by members of the music theory and musicology faculty, respectively. Incoming graduate students who do not achieve satisfactory results on any portion of these diagnostic examinations may be required to undertake remediation.
