Summer graduate workshops offer an outstanding professional development experience for educators in the field. These one-week workshops provide a variety of educational experiences each year and may be taken by degree students or non-degree students, for credit or not for credit.

The workshops usually occur in the week preceding the five-week graduate music summer session, but will run in the week following the session in 2020. Workshops offering students in the summer music education degree program an opportunity to earn credits outside of the regular summer session. Up to five credits from workshops may be applied toward a master's degree.
