As a result of the changes to the Bachelor of Music (Honours) curriculum for 2020 and the changes to Semester Two 2020 course offerings because of the COVID-19 pandemic, significant numbers of students find themselves needing to apply for a variation to their major or program because a course they are required to take is no longer available and they need to take another course as a substitute. To help students in this situation, the following variations have been pre-approved by the Associate Dean, Academic of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences: you do not need to apply for any of the variations listed on this page.
