Advisers: Sarah Allen, Julie Scott

Two options are provided in the M.M. in music education: 1) an option for candidates who already hold teaching certification and 2) an option for candidates with a degree in music who are seeking teacher certification. The M.M. in music education may be earned on a part-time basis, typically in three years, or on a full-time basis, typically in two years. Courses are offered in the evenings and summers to accommodate in-service teachers, thereby enabling them to continue in their jobs while pursuing the degree. Full-time students may take daytime and evening classes. At least nine credit hours of the required coursework in MUHI, MUTH or electives must be from 6000-level courses that are not double listed.
