Combined Bachelor's and Master's Degree Programs

New York State now requires that teachers seeking professional certification in the state complete a master's degree within five years of their initial certification. With this expectation students may want 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 with careful planning and by attending summer sessions. Qualified students in the four-and-one-half year program may complete their bachelor's degree and the master's degree in music education in five-and-one-half or six years. Any student interested in these opportunities 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. Please note that students must make formal application to the graduate program and be accepted in order to pursue the master's degree. Graduate-level music education core courses (Psychology of Music Teaching and Seminar in Music Education) may not be taken until formal acceptance into the graduate program.

Below are suggested plans of study for each of the bachelor's programs.
