B.S. in Music — Music Education Concentration

The Music Education concentration has two tracks.

  • Vocal/General Music
  • Instrumental/General Music

Vocal/General Music Track

The Music Education curriculum is designed to prepare students for licensing in Indiana and Kentucky to teach music at all levels of education from K-12 (also known as P-12). Students interested in vocal/choral music should enroll in the Vocal and General Music track. This curriculum provides a strong foundation in musical study and pedagogy, as well as offering a breadth of general education subjects. Since the best way to learn teaching is to be in the classroom, the program features extensive field experience in classrooms in the region.
