The University of Florida is launching a new fully-online Master of Music in Music Education degree program to begin in the fall, the school announced May 9.
The program, which does not lead to state certification, is designed for students who hold a bachelor’s degree in music or music education and experience teaching kindergarten through 12th grade.
The program will start every fall, spring, and summer, and is designed to be completed in as few as two years. Students will take two eight-week courses per semester, with a final 16-week capstone course.
Coursework for the program covers topics including methods of research in music education, foundations of music education, contemporary curriculum practices in music education, foundations of musical behavior, a master’s thesis or individual project, and music electives.
The university is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The music education programs are accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.
