In conjunction with SU's School of Education, we offer a music education preparation program leading to the master of science (M.S.) degree for those students with an undergraduate major in music but not in music education who seek teacher certification. Music education also offers two professional certification master’s degree programs for those who hold New York State initial certification in music and want to meet academic requirements for professional certification.
Students may elect the M.S. or the master of music (M.M.) degree. Both programs include study in music education. Other courses in the M.S. in music education/professional certification program would emphasize education courses outside of music education. Additional coursework in the M.M. in music education/professional certification program would include offerings from other areas within the Setnor School of Music.
A concentration in music education is also available for doctoral students in the teaching and curriculum program.
