The master of music education in music (M.M.E.) is designed to prepare students for increasing responsibilities in the field of music teaching. Completion of this degree qualifies the individual for an Alabama Class A teaching certificate. Two distinct programs are offered. The traditional program (Pattern 1) is for persons who hold an Alabama Class B teaching certificate or its equivalent. The fifth year non-traditional program (Pattern 2) is for persons whose previous education does not make them eligible for an Alabama Class B teaching certificate. Both programs conclude with an oral comprehensive examination.
