Music Education Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments

Professional musicians teach in various settings such as private lessons, classroom lectures, presentations at conferences, directing performing ensembles, and as artists in residence. The Music Education minor is open to all music majors desiring preparation for these roles.

The Music Education minor complements the degree studies of all music majors with two courses even counting within the liberal arts core of the student’s bachelor degree. Coursework includes instruction in each of the instrument families, pedagogy of private instruction and improvisation, conducting, rehearsing jazz ensembles, the psychology of teaching and learning music, and the needs of special learners. Field experiences include working with ensembles in public and private schools.

Music Education minors will be able to complete the Master of Arts in Teaching degree (MAT) and receive teacher certification in one additional academic year. This “4 +1” option allows students to earn a MUED minor, bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, and teacher certification in only five years.

Music Education Minor Credits: 20
