All music degree programs include:

  • applied music courses (private lessons and ensembles)
  • courses in music history
  • music theory
  • ethnomusicology
  • aural and keyboard skills
  • and a variety of elective music courses

Students with previous work in music theory and advanced abilities in aural skills may be given advanced status, being able to replace certain courses with electives. In affiliation with Conservatory Canada, students who have completed music history, theory, and aural and keyboard skills courses at Augustana are able to transfer these to Conservatory Canada, in order to satisfy some of the written requirements.

The following list shows most of the courses offered in the upcoming/current school year. For a complete list, please refer to the Academic Calendar.
