A Demographic Study of Music Education Professors in the United States (Poster Session)
The purpose of this study was to construct a demographic and workload profile of the typical music education faculty member in the United States. Participants were selected from a random sample of NASM-accredited institutions offering music education degree programs. Through an online survey, participants responded to questions regarding higher education work history and demographics, including: (a) degrees held; (b) sex; (c) K-12 teaching experience; and (d) age. Certain characteristics of the profile varied according to the type of institution at which the respondent worked. The exploration of demographic and workload norms in the music education professoriate may be of interest to those who prepare music teacher education faculty.
