Program Description:

The music education concentration provides practicing music educators with advanced pedagogical skills that enable them to connect contemporary methodologies to a comprehensive knowledge of the historical, theoretical, and philosophical foundations upon which the profession is based. In addition to developing pedagogical skills, graduate students in music education also gain an increased understanding of the aesthetics of music, increase their abilities in performance, and investigate scholarly topics.

The program is challenging and includes a concentration-specific comprehensive exit requirement as well as an educational research master's thesis that explores the impact on P-12 learning. Up to 9 credits in the program may be taken for non-degree credit or toward the 100 hours of professional development required of teachers in New Jersey every five years. Appropriate non-degree credits may eventually be applied to the master’s degree.
