Masters Programs in Music Education
Syracuse's graduate programs in music education provide an environment of excellence where one can develop the understanding and skills necessary to become a competent, independent, life-long learner and music educator. The program provides its students with opportunities to nurture and develop optimal teaching competencies, artistry and musicianship, and philosophical, theoretical, and historical perspectives of music and music education.
The program offers three graduate degrees in conjunction with Syracuse University's School of Education, a unique partnership that gives one the flexibility to pursue both music and education coursework. This partnership encourages students to become "change agents" who will develop innovative teaching methods and solutions within the educational system.
The Master of Music (M.M.) and Master of Science (M.S.) degree programs are designed for students who possess an undergraduate degree in music education. These three-semester programs are grounded in music and educational research and diverse performance opportunities.

The M.S. graduate-level teaching preparation program is designed for students who possess an undergraduate degree in music but not in the field of music education. The program provides a core of graduate-level courses in research, history, theory, and education as well as the opportunity to study music education topics required for New York State teacher certification in music education.
