Endorsements in music
Subject-area endorsements in music
The subject-area endorsements in music are designed to prepare elementary
and secondary education students with the necessary background to teach
general music and to conduct an ensemble.
To ensure proper sequencing of courses, students planning to pursue music
endorsements should consult with the music department and the education
division prior to taking courses.
Students are advised to consult with the education division about the
specific degree and certification requirements for programs in education.
Specific course requirements for the subject-area endorsements within music
are available in the music department office or the education division
The State's Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction sometimes
makes changes in requirements that take precedence over information printed
in the University's catalogs. To ensure proper sequencing of courses,
education students planning programs in music are encouraged to consult with
the music department and the education division prior to taking courses.
