MONROE, La. (AP) — (8/3/19) The University of Louisiana at Monroe has a new summer program for school music teachers who want to earn a master’s degree in music education.

A news release said the program takes three summers, with sessions timed so high school band directors can hold school band camps in July.

The head of the School of Visual and Performing Arts, Dearle Long, says the summer program means teachers can keep working while earning the degree.

Long said in an email that it’s Louisiana’s only master’s of music degree designed primarily for teacher preparation, and the only one that’s summer-only on campus. He says others are aimed either at research or a combination of research, performance and music education.

The first seven students are taking classes.
