M.M. in Music Education
Music Education students typically complete their program in two semesters of study (fall/spring). Applicants who have teaching positions and are therefore unable to attend in the fall and spring semesters may complete the degree in as few as two summer semesters (with additional online coursework).
Students entering the Master of Music in Music Education degree are expected to have a Bachelor of Music in Music Education degree or another Bachelor of Music degree with New York State (or equivalent) music teacher certification. For those persons holding initial certification to teach music K-12 in the State of New York, all degree programs in The Crane School of Music are designed to fulfill the academic requirements for professional certification to teach K-12 music in the State of New York.
Alternatively, for students who have a Bachelor of Music degree in an area other than Music Education, and who are interested in getting both music teacher certification and a Master of Music in Music Education degree, The Crane School of Music offers a combined certification/Masters option. Typically this program can be completed in two years plus an additional semester of student teaching.
