Summers-Only Master’s Degree in Music Education

We are proud that at Eastman you will study with the major professors in music education who teach the same courses during the academic year. This is not like many summer master’s degree programs where courses are taught by part-time summers-only faculty. Also, our summer courses are offered in a predictable pattern so that you are able to complete your degree in a timely manner.
