Jazz Studies, Undergraduate Certificate

The School of Music offers a 15-hour Undergraduate Certificate in Jazz Studies to provide students with a foundation in the skills necessary to be a successful performer in the jazz idiom. The certificate program combines lecture and laboratory courses (performance ensembles) with private study, much like the mentor/apprentice tradition seen throughout the history of jazz music.

Music education students are often required to teach jazz music and direct jazz ensembles after entering the workforce as professional music educators. Successful completion of this certificate program will make students more competitive in this job market.

The certificate requires the following courses: MUEN 3105  and MUEN 3106 , MUTH 3205  (may substitute MUSI 4000  Jazz/Commercial Arranging with permission of program coordinator), MUAP 1001  and MUAP 3205 , and MUHL 2304 .
