The Master of Music Education degree provides opportunity for advanced study in the art of music, pedagogy, and systematic problem solving. In addition to the traditional academic year program, a "summer only" option is available.
A minimum of 30 credits is required, of which 20 must be earned at the University Park campus. At least 18 credits at the 500 level or above (with at least 6 credits in 500 level) must be included in the program.
Admission requires 12–15 credits in music education methods at the undergraduate level, successful teaching or student teaching experience, and a video taped demonstration of teaching and musical competence. Also required are a master's paper and a comprehensive examination.
