Note that course requirements for the Education Minor are subject to change in order to meet Maryland State Department of Education certification regulations and accreditation requirements.

There are TWO options for students interested in teacher certification in music

1.  A four-year program culminating in a Bachelor’s Degree with a minor in Education and Certification. STUDENTS SHOULD BE AWARE THAT THERE ARE SIGNIFICANTLY MORE REQUIREMENTS IN MUSIC COURSES FOR THE MUSIC WITH THE EDUCATION MINOR THAN IN THE BASIC MUSIC MAJOR. SEE THE FOLLOWING SECTION FOR ALL OF THE MUSIC WITH EDUCATION minor REQUIREMENTS.

2.  A five-year program  culminating in a Bachelor of Arts with a music major, and a Master of Science in Education, and a pre-K through 12 teaching certificate.
