The Music Education, Mus.B. degree prepares graduates for successful and fulfilling careers as music educators across New York state and beyond. Fredonia believes music education is one of the most noble and rewarding career paths, and we strive to create an ideal environment for the training of future music educators. Music education majors receive hands-on teaching experiences in the public schools beginning in the second semester of their freshman year.

The State University of New York at Fredonia is committed to doing our part to provide each student a clear path to graduation. This four-year degree plan is a sample map for fulfilling requirements in the major, the Fredonia Foundations (FF), and other supporting courses. The pathway that you take to your degree may differ somewhat from this illustration, depending on where you start and the detours and side trips you may take along the way.
