The Master of Music Education, leading to Initial Licensure, is the graduate segment of the music teacher preparation certification program at the University. Upon completion of the M.M. Ed. (Teaching Certification) degree program, students may file an application to the Massachusetts Department of Education for Initial Licensure and become fully certified teachers in Massachusetts.
The Master of Music in Music Education (Research Thesis/Project Track OR community Music Option) at University of Massachusetts Lowell provide advanced study of music teaching and learning and professional preparation for those engaged in or aspiring to a career as a music educator.
The Master of Music in Music Education has two non-certification options consisting of the research-based Research Thesis/Project track for fully-certified music teachers who are seeking professionalization and the Community Music option which serves to broaden the definition of music education to include other venues beyond public school teaching such as community outreach programs, arts organizations and educational media.
All of the programs are designed to facilitate students' growth and development as leaders in the profession of music education; as creative problem solvers and innovative thinkers; as individuals who love music and the arts and utilize their knowledge of and enthusiasm for music to inspire students; and as contributors, through research, to the profession and discipline of music education.
