The music education program, which leads to a Bachelor or Music degree, is designed to give students a strong foundation in musical and teaching skills and to enable them to obtain initial certification for public school teaching (all grades) in New York State and other states with which there are reciprocal arrangements. Music education students are dually enrolled in the Setnor School of Music and the School of Education. They may elect one of five emphases: brass, choral/general, woodwind, percussion, or strings. By graduation, students are expected to have achieved competencies in all the musical disciplines (e.g., principal and secondary performance areas, music history and theory, sight-singing and dictation, and conducting and ensemble participation) in addition to teaching competencies in such areas as classroom management techniques and curriculum development skills.
