The Music Education Program of the School of Music offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees in Music Education.  Our program has been providing training for music educators for over 50 years.  Our students are employed in public and private institutions around the country.

Undergraduate Degree
The goal of the undergraduate Music Education program at ECU is to prepare, develop, and advance students to a professional level through an experiential program that emphasizes attainment of concert performance and basic and new knowledge taught in the core and teaching areas.

Graduate Degrees
The MM in Music Education is predominantly online and has two options: one is in teacher education (approved for North Carolina teacher licensure), the other option does not include licensure preparation. A Music Therapy emphasis in the MM in Music Education is another option that prepares students for therapy licensing board exams while completing a masters degree in music education that does not include teacher education preparation.
