You are at the Department of Music Education and Music Therapy homepage. Links from here take you to degree and program options for the two professional tracks. In each, our mission is consistent: Preparing excellent professionals. To that end, we offer curricula focused on exemplary skills, qualities, and dispositions; faculty members who are specialists in their respective fields; and site placements that develop and refine pedagogical and clinical skills under the supervision of outstanding practitioners.

We take pride in the significant contributions of our many graduates, the accomplishments of our current students working toward certifications, and the affirmation that comes with our professional accreditations (American Music Therapy Association, the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and the National Association of Schools of Music). Program details and faculty contact information can be found by following the links below. Feel free to contact faculty directly with questions.
