School of Music
Undergraduate Certificate in Jazz Studies
The School of Music offers a 15-hour Undergraduate Certificate in Jazz Studies to
provide students with a foundation in the skills necessary to be a successful performer
in the jazz idiom. The certificate program combines lecture and laboratory courses
(performance ensembles) with private study, much like the mentor/apprentice tradition
seen throughout the history of jazz music.
Music education students are often required to teach jazz music and direct jazz ensembles after entering the workforce as professional music educators. Successful completion of this certificate program will make students more competitive in this job market.
