The Music Department requires that students establish and maintain a minimum composite GPA of 3.0 computed using grades in all undergraduate music courses and also complete an MAE Review (after completing the ED 389 Foundations of Education course). Details and instructions about the Review can be obtained from the Music MAE Director in the Department of Music.

Please see your Education advisor each semester to ensure smooth processing through the program.
Students being certified to teach in Missouri must have a 2.75 or higher GPA overall, a 3.0 GPA or higher in their content area, and a 3.0 GPA or higher in professional classes (mostly education classes). This GPA sheet was crafted to help students keep track of these three GPA calculations, as well as to aid with advisement and enrollment. If students have any questions about their GPA, they should meet with their specialty area advisor.

Truman is really the land of opportunity. If there is a project or idea that you want to pursue, all you have to do is reach out to students and faculty and the idea can become reality. I was able to collaborate on a variety of ventures from research projects, to starting new organizations, to finding internships, and even planned some travel experiences. Your imagination is the limit here!
