This articulation between Laurier and Randolph College for the Performing Arts (RCPA) is designed to allow students to earn both their Bachelor of Community Music and their Performing Arts diploma in only four years.
Participants must successfully graduate from RCPA’s two-year Performing Arts diploma program before transferring to Laurier to complete their Bachelor of Community Music. Students applying to Laurier will receive 10.0 transfer credits. To complete your degree at Laurier, you must complete 10.0 additional credits (two additional years of full-time study).
Throughout your Community Music degree, you will take courses in topics such as musical cultures, music of the world, songwriting and jazz harmony. Once you have accepted your offer, please consult Academic Advising and our Course Registration Guide to determine the specific courses you'll need to take during your time at Laurier.
Enrolment at both Laurier and RCPA requires successful completion of an audition with each institution.
Regardless of whether Laurier or RCPA is attended first, students must apply for transfer to the other program within 10 years of their final year enrolled in a qualifying program at their initial institution.
