In this paper, we introduce and study torsion-theoretic generalizations of singular and nonsingular modules by using the concept of -essential submodule for a hereditary torsion theory . We introduce two new module classes called -singular and non--singular modules. We investigate some properties of these module classes and present some examples to show that these new module classes are different from singular and nonsingular modules. We give a characterization of -semisimple rings via non--singular modules. We prove that if M/(M) is non--singular for a module M, then every submodule of M has a unique -closure. We give some properties of the torsion theory generated by the class of all -singular modules. We obtain a decomposition theorem for a strongly -extending module by using non--singular modules.
