The music education graduate program offers a core course of study along with numerous electives in music and education that provide an individualized program that caters to the individual’s specific career goals. Candidates for the Master of Music degree must have their baccalaureate degree from an accredited school or department of music and must also give evidence of accomplishments during their undergraduate years commensurate with those that lead to the Bachelor of Music degree at University of the Pacific. All transcripts and placement tests are evaluated; recommendations for courses of study are made accordingly. Supplementary undergraduate work may be prescribed if deemed advisable. The major field is music education. The music education department offers two plans for students who have completed an undergraduate music education degree: Plan A with emphasis on research, Plan B with emphasis on advanced techniques and practices in music education and music. Students with an undergraduate music degree other than music education can obtain the master’s degree and California music certificate in teaching through the Master of Education in Music Education offered through the School of Education. See music education department chair for program description. In certain cases (depending on previous teaching experience), a candidate may gain the teaching credential with the Master of Music Education degree, working with both the Conservatory of Music and the Gladys L. Benerd School of Education; see music education department coordinator for details. Note that MM programs contain a number of electives; specific courses come from the upper division and graduate courses listed later in this catalog and in the university’s general catalog. This flexibility of electives allows for the personalization of the degree plan. Students must complete a minimum of 33 units with a Pacific cumulative grade point average of 3.0 in order to earn the master of music degree in music education.
