4 College Junior

Academics: Love my teachers and classes!

4 College Junior

Academics: everything is great, getting into classes can be difficult sometimes

4 College Senior

Academics: Its great but its a tough major.

5 College Senior

Academics: I love this program. Teacher's make it fun and really know the content they teach.

3 College Senior

Academics: I've been a music education major up until this point and although the program is a good one the workload goes overboard. The facilities are great and from what I know the internship/job opportunities are easy enough to find. But the curriculum and workload ask far more from students than most other degrees do and it gets to be a bit too much.
