McGill Question

<p>Hi!</p>

<p>I'm really intrigued by some of the awesome dual degree programs in the US such as Oberlin, where you can earn a degree from both the conservatory and the college of arts and sciences. </p>

<p>Is this possible at McGill? I.e., is one capable of earning a degree from both the Schulich School of Music as well as the Faculty of Sciences simultaneously?</p>

<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>When my son spoke to the admissions folks at McGill, they said there was a lot of flexibility. Music students do not have specific GenEd requirements. Rather, they can use those elective credits any way they want. That in itself is not enough to make a second degree. So, I think if you want to major in music and science, you would have to assume it would take at least an additional semester and more likely two.</p>

<p>Here is the link to the McGill programs and degree requirements. </p>

<p>Hi,</p>

<p>I believe you cannot double major until second year. I am basing this information on what I know of a friend's son's experience. </p>

<p>I would check very carefully with the School of Music.</p>
