Social Science and Music is a three-year, pre-university double-concentration program in which students earn two CEGEP diplomas: one in Music and one in Social Science. In each of the six semesters, students take courses from the General Education component, from the Music program and from the Social Science program.

The Double DECs are designed for students who:

  • want to pursue their music studies but wish to broaden their knowledge and experience in another field
  • know they want to pursue one field at university but want to continue studying a broad range of subjects
  • are not yet sure which area to pursue at university but want to keep their options open by completing two diplomas.

Our Music and Double DEC programs are unique in Quebec thanks to our partnership with the prestigious Schulich School of Music of McGill University.

WHY CHOOSE MUSIC AND SOCIAL SCIENCE AT MARIANOPOLIS?

Students who wish to pursue the social sciences and maintain and develop their expertise in music, should choose the Social Science and Music Double DEC. This program keeps your options open at university, especially if you are not sure yet what area you wish to pursue after CEGEP.

Certificates

You can also participate in a certificate in Environmental Studies, Gender and Sex/uality Studies, International Studies, Law and Social Justice, Native Studies or Third World Studies.

WHERE DOES IT LEAD?

The double concentration in Social Science and Music prepares you for studies in the Music and Social Science fields, including Administration, Anthropology, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, General Arts, Education, Law, and Social Work, among others.
