Reach new heights in teaching and performance  

The 30-credit Master of Arts in Music Education program is an online and summer-intensive program designed for the working K–12 music teacher.


The program can be completed in two years while taking a manageable five credits per term. During the fall and winter semesters you'll take classes online, and during two summers you attend intensive sessions.

As a student you will:

  • Take courses in music pedagogy, education learning theory, research, and performance
  • Improve your skills as an administrator of music programs at your school
  • Focus on those periods of music history that most interest you
  • Have the option of auditioning for one of IUP’s ensembles
  • Take advantage of one of the best music libraries in Pennsylvania
  • Qualify for PDE Level II Certification for teaching music K–12
