Clark Atlanta University Relaunches Its Undergraduate Major in Music Education

After a nearly two decades-long hiatus, historically Black Clark Atlanta University has announced the relaunch of its undergraduate major in music education.

In 2005, the university discontinued its music education degree program. Housed in the department of music, the relaunched undergraduate program is designed to prepare the next generation of music educators and advocates for the arts. The curriculum will include courses on music theory and practice, various musical traditions, and pedagogical approaches.

In a university blog post, Clark Atlanta University provost Charles Gilbert states, “The belief at Clark Atlanta University is that every student deserves the opportunity to explore their musical talents and pursue their passions. The relaunch of the music education major underscores the university’s commitment to providing inclusive and innovative educational opportunities that empower students through music to achieve their dreams and make a positive impact in the world.”
