The University of Northern Iowa is accepting applications for its Master of Music (MM) in Music Education degree program scheduled to begin fall 2017. This two-year program is designed for those wishing to develop skills as an accomplished teacher, enhance teaching credentials, advance their pay scale, gain access to current educational trends and issues, and broaden their perspectives on music education.
"Music education is constantly changing and music teachers need to keep up with all the new developments. The Masters in Music Education allows practicing teachers to learn the ideas that are shaping music education and bring them into their classrooms," says Kevin Droe, program coordinator.
Courses in this program are offered via interactive video conferencing methods, including Adobe Connect, Monday evenings during fall and spring semesters. Summers may include additional video conferencing sessions. Some coursework is offered online using eLearning, a Blackboard learning management system requiring Internet access and a web browser.
The program begins this fall using a cohort model in which a group of students moves together through the course sequence, with a degree to be earned in the fall of 2019. To learn more about the program and how to apply, visit distance.uni.edu/music-ed.
