Music Post-baccalaureate Certificate

The Certificate in Music provides comprehensive training for a music education specialist in an area of professional interest and/or need. The program is designed to assist music educators in securing focused, advanced study in a personal area of choice. The certificate may be earned separately from, or in conjunction with, the Master of Science in music education. (It does not provide Maryland teaching licensure. Applicants seeking Maryland teaching licensure are required to enroll concurrently in the approved program of post-baccalaureate studies in music education as directed by the program director of music education).

In consultation with the program director and an appropriate faculty mentor, a sequence of courses and experiences totaling 15 to 21 units is identified, which helps music educators to understand the rationale and curricula associated with their chosen interest. A sequence of instruction provides core experiences, supporting experiences, elective opportunities and a culminating experience appropriate to the area of interest.

Examples of core areas of study within the Certificate in Music include the Application of Dalcroze, Orff and Kodaly; Community Music; Conducting (instrumental and vocal), Studio Pedagogy and Music Industry.
