Bachelor of Music Education + Teaching License


Become a successful music educator through Pacific University's Bachelor of Music Education (BME) + teaching license program.

Pacific University’s Bachelor of Music Education + teaching license program is designed for students whose professional goal is teaching music in Pre-K-12 educational settings and those who aspire to make a difference in students’ lives through sharing their passion for music. This professional degree will provide students with knowledge, skills, and competencies inherent to the music teaching profession, while at the same time allowing them to grow into well-rounded citizens through the rich, liberal arts based curriculum.

The BME program provides students with the unique opportunity to practice their teaching skills under the close supervision of highly educated and experienced faculty, while working with school-aged students (K-12) within our nationally recognized after-school Music Education Project.

Pacific University’s Department of Music faculty is among the most active professionals at state, regional, national, and international levels. This provides students with on-going opportunities to attend, present, and perform at state, regional, and national conferences, and this provides students with a wide-range of networking opportunities.
