The specialized studies through this program can prepare you to become a certified music teacher or meet eligibility requirements to take the music therapy certification exam. Please note that you must be a graduate of a National Association of Schools of Music accredited institution, or an equivalent institution outside of the United States, to qualify for admission. If you're seeking a second bachelor's degree, you'll need to complete the undergraduate application process.
Since program certification requirements vary for these certifications, please contact both the College of Education and the Department of Music and Dance for information.
If you are applying for this program, please note that you do not need to fill out the application's "Piano Placements" and "Music Theory Assessment" exam portions. Only those students who wish to enroll in applied music need to complete the "Audition" portion. The applied music audition, if selected, is for placement purposes only and does not determine acceptance into the program.
If you're interested in pursuing the Music Therapy Equivalency certificate, please email Dr. Theresa Merrill at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 734.487.0198 before completing the online application.
