Master of Music in Music Education

Master of Music Education

Our music education program boasts 11 consecutive years of 100 percent placement and has a reputation for excellence in the field. Unlike many other schools, Westminster's music education majors participate fully in the College's programs and enjoy the same studio and ensemble experiences.

The music education program at Westminster develops teachers who can serve as advocates for music in schools, design programs that meet national standards, integrate music into curriculum, and promote critical thinking, acting and feeling in the music classroom. Through our well-respected curriculum you will earn New Jersey certification for teaching vocal and instrumental music at all levels.

Our accreditation by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education makes it easy to transfer certification to other states. Starting in your sophomore year, you'll gain experience as an observer and teacher in elementary and secondary schools - capped by a semester of student teaching during your senior year.
