Music Education Advising:

MUS 3400 or MUS 3440: This class should be taken before Practicum. Beginning with spring 2017 semester, this class will alwasy be offered in the spring.  Please note the new pre-requisite for MUS 3400 and 3440:  Prerequisites & Notes Admission to Teacher Education; "C" or better in MUS 2155; and passing score on the TAP, SAT, or ACT as determined by current state requirements.

Practicum: Practicum (SED 3330 and SED 4330) must be taken the semester right before student teaching. Students should not plan on taking an extra fall or spring semester between Practicum and Student Teaching.

SPE 4500:  This class should be taken after MUS 3400/3440.  Since this class is typically offered in the evening during the academic year, it is possible to take SPE 3500 (4500) at the same time as Practicum (SED 3330/4330). Additionally, SPE 3500 (4500) is often offered in the summer. If you choose to take this class during the summer, please do so after taking MUS 3400/3440.
