School of Music > Academics > Teacher Licensure
The teacher licensure program at DePaul is designed to
meet the needs of individuals who have earned an undergraduate music
degree from an accredited institution (i.e. music performance, jazz
studies, composition, sound recording) and wish to obtain Illinois State
K-12 music teacher licensure.
Applicants to the DePaul music teacher licensure program must meet the following standards:
All teacher licensure students must meet the core requirements of the undergraduate students in music education. Teacher licensure students take courses in four basic areas: music, liberal studies, music education, and education. A transcript review will be done by the music education department, to determine any deficiencies in any of these areas of study. Substitutions will be determined by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs where appropriate.
