The Bachelor of Arts in Music option in Music Education is designed to prepare students with the skills and knowledge to successfully teach music in K-12 schools (entrance audition required). Students receive a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree that focuses on music education. Completion of this curriculum satisfies the pre-professional academic requirements for the Single Subject Teaching Credential in Music. The Music department’s program is fully approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

The curriculum provides a broad-based comprehensive approach to the teaching of music through experiences in aural skills; theory; improvisation; technology; conducting and arranging; history; world music; choral, general and instrumental methods; observation and field experiences; small and large ensembles; and private lessons. Music education students study with the same teachers and perform with the same ensembles as the performance majors.

The CSU, Northridge Music department maintains a close relationship with area schools allowing students many early opportunities to observe and experience teaching prior to student teaching. These schools provide diverse urban and suburban settings with mentor teachers for student teacher placements during the credential program.

The credential program is a fifth year of study that follows the B.A. degree. This program, which includes two semesters of student teaching, must be completed to receive the California teaching credential that is required to teach in California Public Schools.
