About this Program

The music education degree is an interdisciplinary program that requires study in both the School of Education and the School of Music, leading to a Texas state teaching certificate that qualifies holders to teach music in Early Childhood through 12th grade.

The music education degree program provides students opportunities to gain experience from tutoring or assistant teaching, as well as extensive training through field-based observation. To best prepare for a career in the classroom, music education majors often prepare and deliver unit presentations in class.

To help them fully embrace the interdisciplinary nature of the music education program, majors enhance their learning experience through membership in the student organizations of both the School of Education and the School of Music. Students seeking a bachelor’s degree in music education should expect to complete 55 hours of upper-level study compiled from professional education courses like Principles and Practices in Education and field-specific studies such as Conducting, Vocal Pedagogy, and History and Literature of Western Music.


A Bachelor of Music Education Degree in choral music for teaching all grades requires 124 course hours. A state test must be taken in order to do student teaching. Music and education courses are required for this degree.
