Graduate Programs in Music

Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.
---- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The words of German poet and dramatist, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, go a long way in explaining the philosophy of learning in SUNY Fredonia's Graduate School of Music.

Our school has a strong tradition of musical and teaching excellence. Accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music, our school is a nationally recognized undergraduate and graduate program in a comprehensive, liberal arts and sciences college of the State University of New York.

The graduate music education program offer s options that enable you to tailor your grduate study to your professional and musical goals. In-service teachers or resident graduate students who have already obtained Initial Certification can earn the Master of Music in Music Education meeting the educational requirements for Professional Certification through either the In-Service Program or the Thesis/Final Project Program. If you earned your baccalaureate degree in a music area other than education (e.g., performance, music theory) and you do not yet have certification to teach, you can complete the educational requirements for the Initial Certification in teaching while working towards your Master of Music in Music Education degree by taking the Initial Certification Track.
