There is no "typical" MA student. Some students pursue the degree on a full-time basis, while others who live in the Columbus area complete the degree through evening and summer courses while continuing to teach. Whether you are seeking personal improvement and professional development as a teacher, or are considering doctoral study down the road, the Ohio State MA in Music Education program will help you achieve your goals.
