The Master of Music in Music Teaching, for candidates who hold an undergraduate degree in music outside of music education, aims to train today's music teacher as both musician and educator. This degree is specifically designed for students to gain their teaching licensure credential. Graduate students majoring in Music Teaching choose between vocal or instrumental licensure. 

In addition to courses in the area of specialization, coursework also is required in music education foundations, contemporary educational issues, diverse learners, and educational psychology. Supporting courses in music include research, theory, history, ensemble participation, and applied studies.

Music Teaching majors are required to successfully complete written and oral comprehensive examinations. In fulfillment of teaching licensure requirements, the culminating project will be the EdTPA Portfolio, completed during the Student Teaching semester.
