Music Education Major with Instrumental Concentration (B.S.)

The Music Education Major with Instrumental Concentration (B.S.) leads to Professional Standards Commission (PSC) certification in music education. After successful completion of the program, students may apply for K-12 certification and may pursue employment in either public or private schools. 

Students in this program may also prepare for entry into an advanced degree program in a related field, or develop a foundation of teaching techniques for building private studios.

Our program places emphasis on the cognitive development of children and young adults, and the benefits of studying music to the individual, and to society, at large.

As part of the music education program, students:

  • Develop a full understanding of the philosophy of music education.
  • Prepare a sample professional portfolio. 
  • Construct a semester-long comprehensive curriculum based upon performance literature, music literacy techniques, and the state and national standards.
  • Create a professional resume and application packet that they may use to seek entry into the profession.

If you have questions about the Music Education degree programs at the University of North Georgia, please contact the Program Coordinator, Dr. Ashley Jarrell.
