As a music major, a student concentrates in one of five majors: performance, composition, jazz studies, music technology, or music education. These majors range from 56 to 86 credits. A grade of "C" or better in any course counts toward the major, except where otherwise specified.
Music Education Majors must also apply for acceptance into the education department and complete coursework in education as required by the state of Maryland for teacher certification. Please see the UMBC Department of Education for details and requirements.
