Master of Music Education


What will I learn?

The Master of Music Education is intended for those students who wish to improve their teaching abilities for the public school environment or to enable them to teach at the college and/or university level. Graduate Placement Examinations in history and theory will be administered the week prior to the commencement of classes and will determine if a student may advance to graduate level coursework. Failure of one or more sections will require a refresher course in the fall (Graduate Fundamentals).

Thesis Requirement (0-4 hours)

The thesis requirement may be satisfied under Plan A or Plan B. Plan A follows a traditional rigorous research orientation that requires enrollment in MUSC 5960 (Thesis Research, 4 hours credit). Plan B requires a less extensive research document or creative project based on work from a designated course, plus four hours of additional courses. Those writing under Plan B may also enroll in MUSC 5615 (Capstone Research in Music, 3 hours credit).
