BME Degree Plans and Course Progressions
Teachers in Texas elementary and secondary schools are required by law to hold a valid Texas teacher's certificate for the subject to which they are assigned. The program for teacher certification in music is a joint program of the School of Music and the School of Education. A music student who meets requirements for a provisional teacher's certificate must also meet the requirements for a Bachelor of Music Education degree.
Music Education Degree Planning
Listed below are links to semester-by-semester BME degree courses progressions for 4-, 4.5-, and 5-year programs. It is extremely important that these degree plans be followed as closely as possible so that students will be ready for upper-level study at the beginning of the junior year. Following the sophomore year and the successful completion of the sophomore music education evaluation, each student, with his/her advisor, will develop an individual degree plan for the remaining semesters.
