The bachelor's degree program in Music Education concentrates on developing music educators at the undergraduate level who will be ready for successful entry into the teaching profession.

Faculty recommendations for student teaching are not automatic. They must be earned by the student through demonstrated potential in the field, a 3.0 GPA, passing an approved Basic Skill Assessment, and passing Praxis exam II. Students not recommended for student teaching may be permitted to graduate after successful completion of additional coursework, but will not be recommended for Pennsylvania State Music Teacher Certification.

Upon successful completion of the four-year program of study, the five-year double major program of study, or the five-year program with Jazz Component, and upon achieving passing scores on the Praxis Series Assessments (Professional Assessments for Beginning Teachers), students qualify for Pennsylvania state certification for public school music teachers, K-12.

SUMMARY OF REQUIREMENTS

The Bachelor of Music in Music Education is conferred upon a student by recommendation of the faculty and upon the satisfactory completion of a minimum of 126-128 credits (depending on the concentration). This major requires a concentration; the available concentrations are Instrumental: String (options include Cello, Classical Guitar, Double Bass, Harp, String, Viola, and Violin), Instrumental: Brass/Percussion/Woodwinds (options include Bassoon, Brass, Clarinet, Euphonium, Flute, French Horn, Harpsichord, Oboe, Percussion, Saxophone, Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba, and Woodwinds), Piano with a Band/Orchestra Emphasis, Piano with a Choral/General Emphasis, and Voice.
