Students desiring a K-12 teaching license in vocal or instrumental music must be accepted into the education department to complete a minor in education. See education department listing for the supporting minor in education requirements.
Students in music education may receive special credit towards some core requirements. However, they are advised that a program in music fulfilling Minnesota state licensure requirements may require a ninth semester, course overloads and/or attendance at summer school. Students are urged to contact the education department regarding requirements.
