Courses and electives

Instructor working with students on a sound board
Hands-on learning and mentorship make UVic an exceptional place to study music, whether you are interested in sound engineering, musical education or performance.

Many of our undergraduate and graduate courses are open to all UVic students (including all of our ensembles).

UVic students should always feel encouraged to contact individual faculty to inquire about their participation in music courses, especially those at the graduate level. Exceptions are often made, even to restricted courses.
