We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Music Education/Teaching equip postgraduates with the skills to teach music in an academic context.
Taught MA degrees and PGCEs (Postgraduate Certificate of Education) are typical for this subject. However, research-based MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include a relevant undergraduate degree, such as Music Studies or Education.
Courses in this field offer students a direct pathway to careers in teaching, particularly in an academic context. You may choose to specialise in primary or secondary school teaching, or even further and higher education. As well as exploring traditional music teaching, other areas in this field include music psychology and music therapy.
A combination of practical training and academic rigour is to be expected on these courses. Typically, you will undertake a placement within a school or higher education institution, broadening your practical experience whilst developing your knowledge of the concepts and methods surrounding teaching practices.
As well as traditional teaching careers, your experience would also make you suitable for legislative roles in education agencies and government departments, as well as academic writing.
