Music Education

Beth Bolton, Chair

The Department of Music Education concentrates on developing music educators at the undergraduate level who will be ready for successful entry into the teaching profession.

Faculty recommendations for student teaching are not automatic. They must be earned by the student through demonstrated potential in the field, a 3.0 GPA, and passing of Praxis exams I and II. Students not recommended for student teaching may be permitted to graduate after successful completion of additional course work, but will not be recommended for Pennsylvania State Music Teacher Certification.

Upon successful completion of the four-year program of study, the five-year double major program of study, or the five-year program with either a Jazz Studies component or Technology component, and upon achieving passing scores on the Praxis Series Assessments (Professional Assessments for Beginning Teachers), students qualify for Pennsylvania state certification for public school music teachers, K-12.
