The University at Buffalo’s Graduate School of Education (GSE) will offer two new fully online master’s degree programs beginning in January, one in English Education and one in Music Education.

The programs are designed to conform to the requirements outlined by the New York State Education Department and the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC). 

The master’s degree in Music Education is a 33-credit program designed for those who hold initial certification to teach school music and need professional New York State certification (EdM Professional), as well as international students seeking a master’s degree in music education.

Taught by nationally and internationally recognized faculty and seasoned practitioners, the coursework is grounded in music learning theory and is identical to the program offered on-campus. The program can be completed on a part-time basis in two years, and offers students the option of including summer sessions on campus should they desire to do that.

“The new fully online program in music education will help empower musicians with in-depth study of the psychology of learning as an overarching framework for active music making,” says Maria Runfola, PhD, associate professor and program director.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and students will be accepted based on space availability for fall or spring semesters.  Applications are still being accepted for spring 2014, but spaces are limited, so those interested in beginning this spring semester are encouraged to apply immediately.
