The Music Education program at the Idaho State University prepares students for various careers in Education, Organizational Performance, and Sport Science. Students who seek to enter education-related professions are known as "candidates."  Candidates pursuing teaching, professional school personnel, or administrative careers in schools will find an assortment of integrated programs organized to meet their professional aspirations. 

All programs in the College are experiential, collaborative, standards-based, assessment-informed, research-guided, and technology-supported. Idaho State University has an institutional commitment to educator preparation. Educator preparation programs are offered through the faculties of the College of Education, the College of Arts and Letters, the College of Science and Engineering, and the Kasiska Division of Health Sciences.

Professional Education Core

In addition to meeting General Education requirements, teaching field requirements, and program-specific professional knowledge/methodology requirements, programs preparing candidates for Idaho teaching certificates must ensure that program completers have coursework and preparation in educational foundations and general methodology. 

The College has approved a set of professional core courses to fulfill these requirements and ensure that teacher candidates demonstrate competency with respect to the Idaho Core Teacher Standards through course-embedded performance assessments. In general, the professional core courses are taught by faculty in the Department of Teaching and Educational Studies and are taken by candidates across the teacher preparation programs. See the list of Professional Education Core courses required by your program because they vary slightly by degree program.
