Future students

Maisie's class with students playing drums

The Music program at University of Waterloo and Conrad Grebel University College is the next step in furthering your musical experience and preparing for careers such as music teaching, performance, music therapy, and recording.

Programs in Music 

Instruction in over 20 instruments, including voice, is available to both majors and non-majors. Taking music as an Arts degree, allows you to benefit from UWaterloo’s world class co-op program and study the relationship between music and other disciplines such as psychology, technology, peace, and film. A joint-honours degree means that music can be combined with any other faculty, providing even more study options.

Music Specializations 

You can also customize your degree by focusing on Music and Peace, Music in a Global Context, or Church Music and Worship.

Our community 

From the living-learning community to engaging professors, our community sets us apart. Join the students and alumni who have found Music at UWaterloo and Grebel to be the right environment to fuel their passion for music.
