Music Education Teacher Certification
Students wishing teacher certification must take the following courses and fulfill certification requirements as listed by the School of Education and Psychology.
|MUED 395||Elementary School Music Methods and Materials||
|MUED 396||Secondary Music Methods||
Music Education Emphases (Instrumental, Choral)
State certification is available in choral or instrumental music. (Note that the choral emphasis includes additional keyboard studies.) Guidelines for both options are available from the School of Education and Psychology. Students choose one of the following two emphases, depending on their certification goals:
|MUED ||Instrumental Techniques and Methods Classes||
|MUPF ||Applied Music||
|MUPF ||Voice Performance Studies||
|Total Credit Hours:||35
MUPF Applied Music: The student will choose these hours, eight of which must be upper-division, in one applied field. The upper-division hours must be distributed over at least three quarter hours. A maximum of three hours of MUPF 127 may apply to the major. Students who reach a high level of proficiency may, with music faculty approval and guidance, complete this requirement by electing courses which will strengthen their preparedness in other areas within the music field. In no case will the student take fewer than 15 quarter hours in one applied field.
