Admissions: Programs of Study

Music Education

Graduates of this program are eligible for certification to teach and supervise vocal and instrumental music (K-12). In addition to the core music requirements, students take required music education courses, as well as the 25-credit professional education component. Starting in freshman year, students gain practical experience in the K-12 setting. By the end of junior year, students have accumulated a total of 100 hours of assigned field experience in practical classroom observations. The current job market for music educators reflects a high demand including work with young children as an early childhood music specialist, elementary (K-6) or secondary (7-12) music educator, or as a music supervisor.
