Becoming a Music Education Major

Beginning in the first semester of the freshmen year, music education-intended students must satisfy program barriers related to professionalism, pedagogical understanding, and demonstration of competent teaching behaviors. These barriers are cumulative and progressive in nature and serve to promote those students who possess the knowledge and attributes to be an effective music educator. Admission to Upper Division coursework (MUSI 4500; MUSI 4520/4530) is dependent on meeting the criteria listed in each level of the program barriers and completing a second-year review. The second-year review consists of a 30-minute presentation on primary instrument, keyboard and an interview.
