Master's Degree in Music Education
Who is the program for?
The Master's in Music Education at Western provides opportunities for music education professionals working in various areas to develop their professional knowledge and thus have a positive impact on their daily work. The Master's will provide music educators with access to innovative ideas and practice helping them to become leaders in the profession.
Benefits of the program
The newly designed Master's is oriented by three guiding goals:
- Create a diverse learning experience;
- Provide greater program flexibility and student choice; and
- Impact music practitioners' thinking and practice.
In order to do so we are now offering classes in traditional formats, online and blended formats (e.g. video conferencing), as well as via intense-workshop formats.
The program is now available in traditional or accelerated tracks. Students choosing to accelerate their Summer/Online Master's will choose the July-to-July option and be able to complete their studies by taking 3 classes in Summer one and two, and taking 1 class in the Fall and 1 in the Winter. Students in the traditional master's could complete their degree in three terms: Fall, Winter and Summer.
