Programs / Arts / Music (BA)

Program Summary

Students in Carleton’s BA in Music program are exposed to many aspects of music, including music theory, musicology and composition. In our program, you will be able to study a wide variety of musical styles and traditions, including Western classical music, Canadian music, various forms of world music, jazz, and popular music.

Due to the small size of the program, you will receive personal attention from highly qualified faculty who are internationally distinguished and recognized for their achievements in teaching and research.

In the Bachelor of Arts in Music, you may take an Honours, Combined Honours or General program. A Bachelor of Music and a minor in Music are also available.
