Music Education

Music is a gift meant to be shared, and our Bachelor of Science in Music Education will give you the tools you need to do so effectively.

Florida College’s comprehensive experience in music education includes a general education core, Bible classes, and a music core consisting of music theory, music history, music technology, conducting, ensembles, and private instrument or voice lessons. Students also have the opportunity to put newly developed skills into practice with pre-internship field experiences in schools that culminate in a semester-long internship. Music education graduates leave prepared to meet state certification requirements for teaching music at all levels in schools.
