Program description

Music: Bachelor's

The Music Education program focuses on preparing prospective music educators for teaching instrumental and vocal music in grades K-12. The program is based on the National Standards for Arts Education in Music and the requirements for licensure established by the Tennessee Department of Education.

All undergraduate degree programs in Music Education culminate in a Bachelor's degree in music and a Tennessee K-12 music teaching license. The music education programs include a full year internship, which in most states may count as one year of teaching, and twenty-four credit hours or graduate work which may be applied to a Master of Music degree in music education.

Admission requirements

Applicants to this program must hold a minimum of the bachelor's degree or equivalency, and follow the procedures and regulations for applying to the Graduate School of the University and the Graduate Division of the School of Music. (See How to Apply – Graduate.) Required credentials for admission to the School of Music include an application, university application fee, official transcripts of all post-secondary studies, two letters of recommendation, and a repertoire list. Applicants whose native language is not English are required to take and pass the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the “International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Passing marks are 550, 80, and 6.5 for paper-based, internet-based (iBT) TOEFL, and IELTS respectively. Applicants who have received a degree from an accredited US institution in the past two years are exempt from the TOEFL or IELTS requirement.
