Teaching Careers

The Department of Music offers an undergraduate concentration in music studies for teacher preparation and the degree of Master of Music in Teaching, leading to initial licensure for teaching music in the Massachusetts public schools. More information about this program is available from Dr. Gena Greher or Dr. Alex Ruthmann in the Department of Music.

For those students interested in teaching subjects other than music, the Graduate School of Education offers graduate degree programs designed to prepare elementary and secondary school teachers. These programs provide the course work and the apprentice teaching experience required for initial licensure in Massachusetts and in many other states. See the Graduate Catalog, the Graduate School of Education website, or the Office of the Dean, Graduate School of Education, for programs and the requirements for admission.
