The College of Music and Fine Arts in collaboration with Our Lady of Holy Cross College offers coursework leading to a bachelor in music education and alternative music teacher certification in Louisiana. You will prepare for your career by teaching in the community at both public and private schools, studying the school program, reflecting on the work, and applying educational theory in the classroom.
