Music Education, B.Mus


Return to: Music

The Bachelor of Music degree in music education is specifically designed for students seeking professional licensure. Students who will not seek licensure should enroll in the B.S. in Music/General Track program.

The licensure track meets Tennessee and denominational certification requirements. Students must apply for admission to the Teacher Education Program through the School of Education and Psychology. Each student is responsible to determine the additional courses that may be required for certification in the state of his/her choice. This and all information pertaining to licensure can be obtained at the School of Education and Psychology.

Licensure requirements include minimum 2.75 overall average, 2.75 grade point average in education courses with no grade lower than a C, and 2.75 average in music courses with no grade lower than a C-. In addition, music education licensure candidates must pass the appropriate Praxis II tests.
