It offers a flexible way to complete your advanced degree in two years while you retain your current job. You'll be stimulated, challenged and ready to move forward in the classroom and your career.
The online program is practice-oriented and covers the essentials of research in music education, music theory, performance practices, conducting, pedagogy and music education management.
- Learn from recognized leaders: Courses are taught by experienced and highly qualified faculty with years of successful classroom experience

Students will take 30 credits, most online; and spend one week each summer at Northern's beautiful campus (ask about our on-campus housing options). Students will complete two courses each fall, spring and summer term.
"The MME program... looked accessible while I still taught full time. The online portions allowed me to work on my coursework when I could, and the on-campus portions were conveniently scheduled during the summer.”
