The undergraduate focus will be on non-traditional forms of music education oriented toward low-income, at-risk, student populations, and will include internships that work directly with these students. This path will be ideal for future teachers interested in this cohort of students, policy making, and education reform.
Students enrolled in the combined bachelor’s/master’s program may share up to 9 credits between their bachelor’s and master’s degrees. The shared credits must be taken at the graduate level and must meet the degree requirements for each degree.
Students should formally apply to the MAT program after completing 75 credits, and before completing 90 credits, at the bachelor’s level. To be considered for the program, students must have taken at least 12 credit hours in Education, including Schools and Society (EDU-205), Social Justice and Urban Education (EDU-280), Education for International Development (EDU-285), and Theories of Educational Psychology and Human Development (EDU-420).
