Graduate Certificate Program in Teacher Licensure: Vocal


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degree & Certificate Programs

The Graduate Licensure Program: Vocal is offered by the Department of Music for students who have already completed a Master of Music degree. Like the
Master of Music Graduate Licensure Program (GLP) the certificate program will be advised by the Music Education Coordinator; majority of coursework is offered in the Department of Music / College of Fine Arts. This program allows for the Department of Music to meet the needs of Master of Music degree students seeking state teacher licensure requirements and provides for a stronger program than would be available through the state Alternate Licensure Program (ALP).

GLP:Vocal certificate program will include coursework that is required for licensure by the State of Nevada not available or required for Master of Music degrees in Performance, Music Education, Composition, or Conducting. Certificate will also include coursework enabling students to complete licensure requirements without obtaining a second Master of Music degree.
