New bachelor of music degree at Kwantlen

Career-focused program supports the self-employed.

Kwantlen Polytechnic University will offer an undergraduate degree in music beginning this fall.

The Bachelor of Music in Musical Arts degree program (BMMA) was approved by the Ministry of Advanced Education earlier this month and offers traditional music courses, such as music theory, ensembles, and private lessons, but will also include practical courses, such as the Business of Music, Music Pedagogy and the Psychophysiology of Music Performance.

“One feature of the Kwantlen music degree is a career-focused curriculum that supports a high percentage of self-employed individuals in the cultural marketplace,” Zdenek Skoumal, chair of Kwantlen’s music department explains.

The BMMA degree will develop abilities needed to succeed in a variety of musical careers by providing diverse vocational, educational, and life experiences: ensemble concerts, festival appearances, practicums, forums. The program’s commitment to creativity, innovation, personal, intellectual, and performance development will foster lifelong learning.

Practicum opportunities will also be available to students in several streams of the program.
