All teacher certification at the University of Bridgeport occurs at the graduate level, with students earning an M.S. in Elementary Education or Secondary Education with Music Education as the area of study. Qualified candidates completing UB’s Bachelor of Music degree receive preferred consideration for admission to the University’s graduate School of Education, completing the requirements for Connecticut certification in Music (Pre-K-12) concurrently with the master’s degree. Students can complete the BM and MS in five years, with one additional semester for resident teaching. Students in the Music Education certification program complete 18 credits in Music Education and Applied Music; 12 credits in Education, and 10 credits in field experience/internship and clinical practice (student teaching.)

The University’s educator preparation programs offer substantial field experience working in urban, suburban and rural schools to prepare graduates for the realities of contemporary K-12 education. Students participating in the intern program receive their Master of Science degree tuition-free.

Rigorous preparation across the content areas and in the practice of education have historically led to high scores on state-mandated assessments and a strong placement rate with recent graduates serving as teachers and administrators throughout the state, region and country. Extensive personal interaction with our experienced and dedicated faculty allow for a seamless transition from undergraduate to graduate studies, and to initiation to the profession.

The School of Education also offers a Music Education Concentration, designed primarily for practicing music educators, within its Master of Science degree in Education. This program does not lead to certification.
