Combined Bachelor's and Master's Degree Programs

New York State now requires that teachers seeking permanent certification in New York State must complete a master's degree within three years of the time they begin teaching. Realizing this target time frame, students may wish to begin graduate study immediately after graduation with the bachelor's degree.

Qualified students who wish to complete both the bachelor's and master's degree programs in music education within five calendar years may be able to do so by careful planning and by attending summer sessions. An example of such a schedule is given below.

Qualified students in the four-and-one-half year program may also complete that degree and the master's degree in music education in five and one-half or six years. Any student interested should consult with the chair of graduate studies in music at the end of the junior year. Undergraduate students will need to apply for the master's degree, complete all application procedures, and hold a minimum 3.00 GPA. Below are suggested plans of study for each of the bachelor's programs.
