About Music

We are the Department of Music at Waterloo

Conrad Grebel University College has been responsible for offering courses and extra-curricular programs in Music to the wider university since the 1960s. The Bachelor of Arts programs in music has been offered since 1974. Since that time, hundreds of students have graduated from the University of Waterloo with degrees in music.

With our flexible program combining theory, studio, performance and history, students also investigate the "edges" of music including relationships between music and technology, film, gender, or psychology.  Our popular Travel Course allows students to experience and study music while travelling to places such as England, The Baltics or Bali.  Additionally, the Department of Music offers instruction in more than 20 instruments as well as vocal lessons.
