RCM has just announced that they have revised the theory requirements for their ARCT Diploma.

All candidates who successfully complete History 3: 19th Century to Present and any two of the three senior-level harmony stream courses (Counterpoint, Advanced Harmony, and Analysis) will have satisfied the theoretical requirements for the ARCT diploma.

ARCT candidates who complete all three senior-level harmony stream courses, as well as History 3, will also receive the special History and Theory: Advanced Certificate, in addition to their ARCT diploma.

This change applies to all students graduating in the 2011-2012 academic year and all future graduates.
