Bachelor of Music, Music Education Concentration

The Bachelor of Music with a music education concentration prepares the student to teach PreK-12 music. Satisfactory completion of the requirements for this degree entitles the graduate to a license to teach PreK-12 Instrumental Music or Pre-K 12 Vocal Music, issued by the Kansas State Department of Public Instruction.

See individual course descriptions for prerequisites and concurrent enrollment requirements for either the Instrumental Music track or Vocal Music track. Second area certification is available.

Requirements for admission to teacher education and recommendation for a teaching certificate are outlined under the degree Bachelor of Science in Education-Secondary Education Major. Students must successfully complete all General Education and Professional Education Requirements. See PreK-12 Music Education for more information.

The teacher education program is a joint responsibility of this department and the department overseeing middle and secondary education.

What can you do with this degree? 

A music degree communicates an eye for detail, that you are someone who can focus on a task and put in the hours of work to become good. In teaching children and young adults, you teach not only music, but confidence, perseverance and dedication, skills needed for a successful adult life. Music majors have even gone on to pursue careers of medicine, law, writing—careers that depend upon the skills you learn as a music major.
