MME - Instrumental 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. 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.
