Reply To: Masters in Ed vs. Music Ed
Choosing a grad school can be challenging, but the summer study issue of TM might be a great place to start. You might also talk to colleagues and others in your area and ask them about their experiences. Many of the students who come to our graduate program come to us by word of mouth! I would look over the websites very carefully to see if the coursework suits your needs and interests. For example, look for a degree program that offers a “concentration” in the area of interest. Many schools offer what is described by Linda. For some people cost, location, and the availability of loans and other financial aid can play a factor. After you have your search narrowed down using those criteria, make some phone calls and send some emails to the people and places that are of interest to you. I think you can learn a lot about programs based upon those conversations as well.
