Syracuse University offers two music education graduate degree programs designed for students who already possess an undergraduate degree in music education. These one-year music education professional certification programs (Master of Music-M.Mus degree and Master of Science-M.S. degree) provide an environment of excellence under which one can continue to develop the understanding and skills necessary to become a competent, independent teacher of music.

Major Requirements

The programs provide 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 three-semester programs, offered in conjunction with Syracuse University’s School of Education and the Setnor School of Music in the College of Visual and Performing Arts, are grounded in educational research and diverse music performance opportunities. The unique partnership between schools provides flexibility to pursue both music and education coursework while encouraging students to become teachers who develop innovative methods and solutions to instruction within the educational system.

A concentration in music education is also available for doctoral students in the Teaching and Curriculum program.
