A selection of courses in music education, music theory, and music history are offered at the graduate level. 100% of recent MSU music education graduates who sought jobs in music education are currently working in the field.

    The Bachelor of Arts in Music Technology is a synthesis of traditional musical training and application through new technologies. Students develop skills in areas including music composition and theory, recording, sound synthesis, sound design for film and theater, audio for film/video and multimedia, film scoring, notation and sequencing, orchestration, interdisciplinary collaboration, music business, and instrumental/vocal performance.

    MSU-Bozeman is committed to providing a quality graduate program focusing on innovation, superior instruction, service, and accessibility. The Master of Education with an emphasis in Music Education gives K-12 music educators a flexible program combining the best of online and on-campus instruction.
