Graduate Programs in Music Education
The Fred Fox School of Music offers the Master of Music with an emphasis in Music Education and the Doctor of Philosophy in Music with an emphasis in Music Education degrees. Both programs are recognized among the best in the country and have produced many successful and renowned graduates. The Master of Music degree develops your musical skills through ensembles, lessons, and classes. You will also expand your teaching skills through advanced conducting classes and advanced work in specific teaching methodologies. The program works to introduce you to the wider profession of Music Education through the study of research techniques and foundations of music education.
The Master’s degree program allows outstanding students to enter directly into the Ph.D. program with no loss of credits. The Ph.D. in Music develops those skills necessary to succeed in either college teaching or leadership roles in music education. The program is flexible enough to allow you to develop toward your personal career goals. Graduates of this program can be found teaching in colleges and universities across the country and around the world. Graduate assistantships, offered on a competitive basis, are available with teaching, administrative, or research duties. Because assistantships are awarded in the Spring for the following academic year, early application is strongly encouraged.
