The Dual Certification Program affords graduates a credential to teach Kindergarten through twelfth grades (K-12) rather than the Secondary Certificate (6-12) that comes with the standard USU Music Education degree. This program is recommended for all Music Education Majors for the following reasons: 1) the additional courses easily fit into the four-year curriculum and 2) having the Dual Certification allows better reciprocity for students applying for employment in other states, which may require the K-12 certification.
