Name of creator
Originally part of the Arts Techniques Department, Music is a department of the Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications. Once a diploma program with 3 majors (composition, performance, and recording arts), it became a degree in 2011, with the option to obtain a diploma after the completion of the first two years. A new major, Recording and Production, was added in 2019, to the existing majors of Composition, Performance, and General.
The department was housed at the Jasper Place Campus, later named Centre for the Arts and Communications Campus, from 1972? until campus closure in 2017, when it moved to Allard Hall on City Centre Campus.
