The music education programs at the Boston University College of Fine Arts aim to prepare music educators from a variety of backgrounds to work effectively within contemporary landscapes, to reflect, think creatively, and practice inclusivity and equity. Our emphasis extends beyond quality of musicianship and pedagogy to encourage flexibility over a range of instruments and styles. We also encourage self-reflection, collaboration with others, and the ability to enact lessons that are culturally- and ability-responsive. Our students benefit from pursuing their teacher preparation in the rich context of a prestigious research university. We offer a wealth of opportunities from Boston-area professionals as well as technological tools to connect students and scholars from across the world.
Boston University is an AAU institution with a rich tradition dedicated to inclusion and social justice. We were the first American university to award a Ph.D. to a woman and we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as one of the university's graduates. The College of Fine Arts includes diversity as one of its core strategic goals. The music education department is dedicated to increasing the participation of dedicated students who demonstrate gifts in a diverse range of areas. We are committed to the pursuit of excellence in the arts by underrepresented groups at BU and beyond.
The music education department seeks two music educators at the rank of assistant professor (nontenure track) who are familiar with innovative approaches to music pedagogy and research. Special consideration will be given to candidates who bring expertise related to diversity and inclusion, curricular design, and differentiated instruction.
