Updated Music Education Offerings

The GKSOM Music Education Faculty have been working on a pending proposal to streamline the current practice-focused master’s degree to a 30-hour program. Once the program is fully approved, we will communicate with all current music education graduate students about your choices surrounding the degree change. You will have the choice of remaining in the current program or switching to the new plan. All courses in the current degree program will transfer. Our Summer 2023 offerings create a bridge between our previous program and the new degree program. The program transition will take place over a two-year period with all courses eventually offered online so you can complete your degree within a timeline that works best for you!

New students in the program will be able to complete the program in just over two years: 6 credits for three summers, plus 3 credits during each fall and spring semester in between. Our overarching goal is to better meet the needs of our graduate students who are practicing educators, and to help students meet their continuing education goals in a flexible and meaningful way.

Summer 2023 Fellowships

Summer 2023 Graduate Music Education Fellowships

Qualifications: Applicants must be newly accepted and admitted into the University of Nebraska – Lincoln Master of Music Education degree option for Summer 2023.

Application and Deadline: Review of applications will begin May 15, 2023 and fellowships will be awarded based on merit and the date which the degree application was completed.
