*The ensemble for vocal music education majors is Ad Astra Women’s Chorus, Men’s Chorus, Chamber Choir, University Singers, or an additional choral ensemble designated as a major ensemble in the printed Class Schedule. The music education major should apply for formal admission to the teacher education program during the fourth semester. A minimum of 24 credits must be completed for admission. The student may not enroll in Senior Recital until the appropriate applied level has been achieved. The student may not enroll in Student Teaching until the piano proficiency examination has been passed. During the Student Teaching semester, enrollment consists of EDUC 4663, MUED 4239, and major ensemble. Bass School of Music policy also allows enrollment in applied music lessons. All other degree requirements, including the Senior Recital, must be completed prior to student teaching. The B.M.Ed. piano track requires 143 hours per the State of Oklahoma teaching certification requirements. Teacher certification programs are developed in accordance with Oklahoma State laws and, therefore, are subject to change.
