Music Theory Pedagogy Graduate Certificate

About the Music Theory Pedagogy Graduate Certificate Program

The Graduate Certificate in Music Theory Pedagogy prepares graduate music students for teaching music theory at the collegiate level. The Journal of Music Theory Pedagogy reports that 80% of the music theory courses in the U.S. are being taught by people who did not major in music theory. This means that faculty in other areas of music are frequently asked to teach music theory courses. Students who complete this certification will have a tangible record of accomplishment and preparation for these duties. Students in this certificate program will take Pedagogy of Music Theory as well as their choice of other music theory courses so that they are engaged with current trends in research and curriculum. This certificate is open to all students enrolled in a graduate music degree. Required courses: MUTH 5306  and 9 hours of any 5000-level MUTH courses.
