Millersville University’s division of Music Education offers one of the nation’s most comprehensive and integrated programs of study. Students participate in “Creative Campus” initiatives as musicians, educators, and entrepreneurs, and in real-world teaching projects prior to student teaching.

  • CAREER READY with specialized certificates designed to add 21st-century marketable credentials to your degree. Most programs teach you what to teach; we teach you how to teach.
