Music Education

The K-12 education concentration is designed to prepare students to teach vocal music at the K-12 level in Arkansas. The curriculum offered adds professional training and classroom experience to a solid education in the liberal arts.

Students wishing to concentrate in K-12 education must meet program admission requirements for enrollment in junior-level practicum courses, and the Liberal Arts Teacher Education Committee must formally admit students wishing to concentrate in secondary education before their senior internship. 

Students interested in this program can look over the Teacher Education Handbook for more information.
