  • Eleven full-time music education faculty members and 13 part-time professionals guide music education undergraduates through a full and rich experience with major-area courses and student teaching.
  • Music education faculty members are educator-practitioners; they continue to work regularly with music students in public schools and remain current in contemporary practices and pedagogy.
  • The undergraduate music education degree can be completed in four years, or it can combined with a performance degree and completed in four and a half years.
  • Among the graduate degrees offered by the School of Music are the master of music and master of science degrees in music education. These 30-credit, non-thesis degree programs can be completed in a calendar year of full-time study or in three to four years of summer study.
