Music Education

The Bachelor of Music in Music Education (MUST) prepares students to be certified public school teachers.  There are three tracks in this degree: Instrumental (Wind, Strings, and Percussion), Keyboard, and Vocal (Keyboard, Guitar and Harp have either a vocal or instrumental emphasis in determining large ensemble requirements).  Successful completion of the degree qualifies students to sit for the Praxis examination as part of the teacher certification process. Graduates of this program also qualify for certification in other states, subject to the individual processes of each state.  The Bachelor of Music in Music Education degree is constructed on a solid core of performance experiences and, as such, also prepares students for graduate study.  Certification qualifies students to teach instrumental and choral classes K-12 in the NJ Public Schools.

The student who pursues this major will graduate with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education.
