Bachelor of Music, Music Education Concentration
For specific course and program requirements, please consult the current undergraduate catalog.
The Bachelor of Music in Music Education is designed to develop public school music teachers with a passion for the arts. Our students graduate with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to be reflective teachers who believe all students can learn and help them to do so.
Completion of the Music Education Program prepares students to teach both vocal and instrumental music at the kindergarten through high school levels, and is designed to meet the certification requirements set by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The Music Education Program is accredited by NASM, the Pennsylvania Department of Education, The National Council of Accreditation of Teacher Education, and the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
The program provides a balance between a broad general education, the intensive training necessary to develop as a professional musician, and the background of professional study and experience necessary for entering the field of education in today's society.
