Change a degree-major of an existing program

Bachelor of Music Education - Music Education Major


Summary of the changes:

The total credits for the Bachelor of Music Education degree will be reduced from 131 to 126 credits. To achieve this, we will remove one semester of applied music which includes:

Applied lessons (2 credits);

Large ensembles (1 credit);

Concert attendance (0 credits); and

Performance lab (0 credits).

In addition, the number of professional electives will be reduced from 8 to 7, and MUE 3693 - Technology in Music Education will be reduced from 3 credits to 2 credits.

These changes make our music education degree more similar to the music education degree programs at other state universities.

Three course titles are being changed to more accurately reflect course content:

MUE 4311 Elementary Music - Teaching and Assessment is being changed to MUE 4311 Teaching Elementary Music;

MUE 4331 Secondary Choral Music- Teaching and Assessment is being changed to MUE 4331 Teaching Secondary Choral Music; and

MUE 4332 Secondary Instrumental Music- Teaching and Assessment is being changed to MUE 4332 Teaching Secondary Instrumental Music.

Three major electives are being removed from the list of options as they are not strongly related to the curriculum:

MUM1611 Concert Recording;

MUM1622 Introduction to Sound Reinforcement; and

MUT4650 Composition and Improvisation).

One course option is being added: MUE 4xxx - Musical Theater Techniques).

Three 4000-level courses can be substituted with equivalent 5000-level graduate courses to facilitate students wanting to take advantage of a 5-year BME + MME program:

MUE 4331 Teaching Secondary Choral Music can be substituted with MUE 5336 Teaching Secondary Choral Music Programs;

MUE 4332 Teaching Secondary Instrumental Music can be substituted with MUE 5338 Teaching Secondary Instrumental Music Programs; and

MUE 4311 Teaching Elementary Music can be substituted with MUE 5316 Teaching Elementary Music Programs.
