Awesome news for New York music teachers! Those who have completed a Bachelor of Music in Music Education and attained initial certification now have a new, innovative, and technologically savvy option in order to achieve their professional requirements–a game-changer for those who work full-time or do not reside near a college campus.

The Master of Music in Music Education degree offered by Buffalo State College is the first 100% online Mus.M degree to be offered in the State University of New York system.  This means that, unlike other online programs that still require students to attend in-person throughout the semester, the Buffalo State College degree program can be completed solely online.

This allows students from across New York State to achieve their educational objectives on their own schedule and in their own setting–all while paying SUNY tuition, which is among the best value in the nation.

Courses in the program include Educational Foundations, Research, and Music Theory and History. Students are offered opportunities to study contemporary issues in music education and work with full-time Music Education and Conducting faculty to complete independent study in their areas of interest.

Buffalo State College’s online program is a perfect compliment to the verge of Open SUNY, which seeks to become the nation’s largest online degree offering from a public university system!
