A message from the School of Music Summer Coordinator...
The long, bright days of summer will come again, and with them will come a chance to renew your professional knowledge and skills. Whether you are shopping for courses to renew your teaching certificate or looking to begin work on a Masters degree, we here at the UNL School of Music hope you will take a minute to glance at our wide array of 2013 Summer Sessions Offerings and plan to make several of these courses/workshops part of your next summer's activites. I also invite you to examine our more detailed course descriptions and workshop descriptions, where you will find a brief narrative about each offering.
Speaking of our Masters of Music (MM) degree for PreK-12 school music educators, our program offers you a chance to specialize in Choral, General, or Instrumental Music Education. I would like to remind you that our course rotation, is filled with exciting course offerings that will allow you to complete the degree in just four short summers. In particular, I would like to call your attention to our new blended course schedule. Beginning in the Summer of 2013, all regular courses offered in the First Summer Session will require onsite attendance only four days a week—Monday through Thursday—for the typical one hour, thirty-five minute session each of those days. Then on Fridays, we will not meet face-to-face in the classroom; but we will engage in the course content in non-traditional ways, including using the Internet. We trust that you will find this new model of blended instruction both more provocative educationally and more user-friendly economically.
As in the past, newly admitted students in the MM (Music Education) program will receive priority for a Summer Graduate Teaching Assistantship. So act today! Even if you're just very interested in a class or workshop, but are not positive that you will actually attend, utilize our OPEN REGISTRATION before May 1, 2012! The date your tuition bill is due is the same, regardless if you register on March 11 or April 30. In these tight financial times, the longer you wait to register, the greater the chance that your class or workshop may be canceled before Summer Sessions begins. We hope you will find it possible to come to campus this summer; and, if you do not already hold an advanced degree, to join the hundreds of practicing music educators with UNL music graduate degrees who know THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE NEBRASKA'S UNL School of Music to grow and advance in the profession!
