MME - Elementary Music Concentration
Admission to the degree program in music education requires the completion of a Bachelor of Music Education (BME) degree, or the equivalent of a BME, from an accredited institution, as well as the contact information for three people to provide letters of recommendation. Students holding bachelor’s degrees in music other than the Bachelor of Music Education must satisfy public school certification requirements to qualify for full admission. Applicants without such certification are admitted on a conditional basis pending their attainment of public school teaching credentials. Approval of the MME specialization must be acquired.
MME programs range from 32 to 36 hours. Core requirements and terminal project options — outlined below — are the same for each emphasis area unless specifically noted.
