About

The Music Education major at Boston University is designed for students who are ready to think deeply and critically about music education and its changing landscape, and are ready to take on the challenge of creating a positive musical future for children, families, schools, and communities around the globe.

Overview

Key facts

MM candidates must complete two out of three of the following courses (8 credits):

  • History & Philosophy in Music Education: Perspectives and Practice
  • Psychology & Sociology in Music Education: Perspectives and Applications
  • Introduction to Music Education Research

Students of the Music Education program offered by Boston University are also required to complete at least 4 credits in music theory. Students may take up to 16 credits of electives. This provides students with the opportunity to design a program that meets their own individual needs and professional interests. All students in this program are required to complete a capstone curriculum development project.

Master of Music Comprehensive Reviews

A satisfactory comprehensive review or examination is required for graduation. The faculty in each major area determines standards for this review and its format, and conducts the evaluation. In each case, the comprehensive review concentrates on the major area and other related fields. Unsatisfactory performance on this review may require remedial work and/or a repetition of the review after counseling with the student’s advisor. ME 759 Curriculum in Music Education: Vision and Design fulfills this requirement for online students.
