I Have Earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Music

Applicants who have earned a Bachelor's Degree in Music from an accredited institution will need to complete all requirements specific to the music education degree (see Four Year Plans). Determined via an evaluation of academic transcripts, this often involves approximately 40 credit-hours plus the semester-long student teaching practicum.

Admission to this program begins by submitting the required materials for a License Evaluation through the Ball State Educational Licensing Office. Applications for music licensing will be forwarded to the Coordinator of Music Education. Admission to Graduate Study in Music at Ball State University is eventually required. Applicants must have earned Indiana passing scores on all sections of the CASA before registering for classes.

Candidates qualified for this option may wish to consider the Master's Degree Plus License Option.
