Specific Information

The Department Chair and/or music education coordinator will review prospective licensure-only students' transcripts. In addition, students will be required to complete a department assessment before being admitted into the Music Licensure-Only program. Based on the assessment, students will be advised to take specific courses as specified by program content need.

Twenty-four credit hours are required in the music content area. However, additional courses may be required pending the assessment of skills and content knowledge needed for teaching music. The Senior Recital is a requirement established by the music education licensure program. With the written approval of the applied teacher, applied lessons may be reduced with the completion of the Senior Recital.

Thirty education credit hours will be required for the professional education sequence of courses.

The Chair and/or music education coordinator may revise the music education licensure curriculum if deemed necessary by accreditation requirements and/or the Department of Education, Psychology and Health.
