Pre-Teaching Major B.M.
What is the pre-teaching major in music?
If you’re interested in teaching music and would like to obtain a graduate degree, the pre-teaching degree program allows you to complete a Bachelor of Music in music education degree and a Master of Arts in Teaching degree in five years of study. After four years of undergraduate music education, you’ll undertake a fifth-year internship and graduate study to complete your Master of Arts and teaching certification. You’ll study music history, theory analysis and performance, as well as teaching methods and human development. You’ll be able to select an emphasis in vocal or instrumental music.
