Graduate Music Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison

Graduate music education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison inhabits two worlds: the Department of Curriculum of Instruction (C&I) in the School of Education, and the School of Music. This position provides graduate students with maximum flexibility to design graduate programs tailored to their particular interests. Students have two master's degree options: (1) a Master of Science (M.S.) with a concentration in music education, offered through the Department of Curriculum and Instruction; and (2) a Master of Music (M.M.) with a concentration in music education, offered through the School of Music. Students who want to emphasize music content are advised to enroll in the M.M. program, while those who want to explore music education within the context of education at large are directed toward the M.S. The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree with a concentration in music education is offered through the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. All students are encouraged to cross disciplines and to experience the rich educational opportunities provided in both schools, as well as those offered by other departments throughout the university.
