About this course
Graduate degree programs in the School of Music are designed to extend and broaden the professional competency of men and women desiring careers in music. Students may pursue graduate studies in history-literature, theory composition, music education, performance, conducting, and pedagogy. While providing for advanced training in the specific skills of music, these graduate programs help to cultivate the student’s capacity to think - to consider impersonally, dispassionately, and without prejudice any problem related to the art of music.
The Master of Music Education (MME) program allows for concentration in elementary music, choral music, instrumental music (with recital option), music in special education, and voice (with recital option). Conducting options may be elected (with approval) in the choral and instrumental programs.
- Completion of a Bachelor of Music Education (BME) degree, or the equivalent of a BME, from an accredited institution.
- Students holding bachelor’s degrees in music other than the Bachelor of Music Education must satisfy public school certification requirements to qualify for full admission.
Note: Applicants without such certification mentioned above are admitted on a conditional basis pending their attainment of public school teaching credentials. Approval of the MME specialization must be acquired.
