Five-year Bachelor of Music/Music and Digital Media program to begin accepting students for September 2014.

Queen’s University and St. Lawrence College are very pleased to announce that a new concurrent program in music is slated to begin in September.  The five-year Bachelor of Music/Music and Digital Media program introduces a new partnership between the two institutions. The interdisciplinary program will allow students to jointly earn a Bachelor of Music from Queen’s University and a diploma in Music and Digital Media from St. Lawrence College.

“We know that today’s students will need a combination of skills as they go out into the workforce,” says Principal Daniel Woolf. “This exciting new program will allow them to pursue the academic rigour of a music degree, with hands-on technical training that will serve them well as they build their careers.”

“This program will not only allow our students to expand their skills in music – it also opens the door to what is possible for both of our institutions when we join forces,” says Glenn Vollebregt, President and CEO of St. Lawrence College. “We are both equally committed to providing our students with innovative opportunities for learning.”

“Musicians working today need to be entrepreneurial,” says Dr. Margaret Walker, Director of the School of Music at Queen’s. “This program will allow students to develop the interdisciplinary skills they will need, whether they want to produce an album, build a website, or create a music video while they hone their musical abilities.”

“We are pleased to be a part of creating this unique pathway for our current and future students. This is a one-of-a-kind program partnership that cannot be found anywhere else in Canada.” says Dr. Adrienne Shannon, Program Coordinator, Music and Digital Media, St. Lawrence College. “Like a symphony that has the contributions of many musicians for their performance this new partnership reflects that type of collaboration and teamwork.”
