Music Education

Moravian offers a certification program in the teaching of music (K-12). The academic program is described under music. Students also complete Education 130 and Education 160 in separate semesters of the sophomore year and Education 244 in the spring of the sophomore year or in the junior year. Student teaching and the concurrent seminar (Education 375-377 and Music 374.2) are taken in the spring of the senior year.

All students interested in teacher certification are reminded that they must complete courses required for initial admission to the teacher certification program. Specifically, students must complete six credit hours (1.5 Moravian units) in mathematics as well as three credit hours in English composition and three credit hours in English literature.
