Professionals interested in advancing their careers in music education at the early childhood, elementary school, middle school, high school or higher education level can earn their master’s and doctorate degrees at MU. Students with degrees in music may also pursue music-teacher certification while working on their master’s degree.

The music education graduate degree programs are currently offered through the College of Education but will be transitioning to the School of Music in the near future. However, this will not change their general structure and requirements.

See the School of Music for more information about the master’s program and doctoral program.

Students find challenging and rewarding opportunities through MU’s dynamic research and music community and are supported by faculty who are experts in these fields..
