The Division of Music within the School of Performing Arts offers a 30-credit Master of Music degree in Music Education from The University of Maine which is accredited through the National Association of Schools of Music.


Individualized curricula are designed to meet students’ interests and needs while offering a balanced program of academic and professional courses. Students also have the opportunity to pursue a concentration in conducting.


  • Primarily, the Division offers the future and present music educators of our state and region degree programs at the Bachelor’s and Master’s levels. Teaching, service, and creative activity are therefore principally focused on the professional degree programs that serve the music education community. In order to further assist our students to attain the goals to which they aspire, we provide the Bachelor of Music degree in performance and the Bachelor of Arts degree.
  • The Master of Music degree in Music Education from The University of Maine serves a vital function for the reaccreditations and promotion of public school music teachers in Maine and in the region. We also offer options to concentrate on choral or instrumental conducting within the Master of Music Education degree. 
  • Together with the Master of Music degree in Performance our graduate programs provide an important range of graduate studies for the professional musicians and music educators who seek admission to our School. The faculty and students of the Division of Music serve as an educational and cultural resource. 
  • Our musical and pedagogical skills are available and visible through performance, composition, publication, continuing education efforts and consultation, which keep us actively connected with that population from which our students come and to which they return.
