6 5 Ph.D. Assistantship Opportunities The Georgia State University School of Music offers a number of Graduate Assistantships with tuition waivers to incoming graduate students. Highly exceptional Ph.D. applicants will be considered. Assistantships are awarded on a yearly basis, for the Fall and Spring semesters of the academic year. A typical assistantship award consists of a full tuition waiver and a substantial stipend. The Ph.D. course work is configured such that recipients may simultaneously hold part-time, limited outside employment. Any outside employment must allow the student to fulfill the duties of the assistantship. The duties and responsibilities of the Ph.D. assistantships in music education support two primary goals of the music education program: 1. Development of Ph.D. students to serve as faculty members in higher education settings. To that end, recipients will teach one undergraduate course in either the Fall or Spring semester, unless their service is not needed in a given year. Please see Course Teaching and Course Credit for more information. 2. Development of Ph.D. students to serve the unique needs of urban schools, teachers, and young people through multi-lateral partnerships involving community organizations, professional arts organizations, philanthropic leaders, and a variety of professional musicians. This builds on the acclaimed work of the music education program s Center for Educational Partnerships (CEP). A key element of the CEP is the Sound Learning program that has, among other endeavors, facilitated educational partnerships between local schools, music teachers, and members of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Each Ph.D. graduate assistant will be assigned to a leadership role in an affiliated program of the Center for Educational Partnerships; this will involve work within area K-12 schools in collaboration with students, teachers, and professional musicians. Projects will include frequent interaction with the related GSU faculty supervisors. The weekly hours required for assistantship will vary according to the preparation for undergraduate teaching and the implementation of partnership projects. Georgia State University s Ph.D. students in music education historically have found rich research opportunities through these activities, and some have proceeded to use these as source material for their dissertation work. Ph.D. students who are awarded an assistantship in one year may request consideration for an assistantship in the following year.
7 6 COURSE TEACHING AND COURSE CREDIT The music education program actively supports the preparation of Ph.D. students to become faculty members in higher education settings. To that end: Preparation All semesters of MUS 8960 (Proseminar in Music Education) include explorations of current issues and research concerning music teacher education and working in higher education settings. All recipients of Ph.D. assistantship funding teach frequently, both in K-12 settings and as instructors of undergraduate music education courses. Ph.D. students who do not receive assistantship funding are strongly encouraged to speak with their academic advisor about opportunities for teaching undergraduate courses. Internship All Ph.D. students engage in an internship course (EDCI 9660) in higher education. The requirements for this course will vary and will be chosen in consultation with the faculty academic advisor, but the intent is that the Ph.D student will work with a faculty member in the delivery of an upper-division undergraduate methods course. Assistantship Teaching Ph.D. students receiving assistantship funding are required to teach a section of a lower-division undergraduate music education course during each year of the award unless their service is not needed in a given year. If desired by either students or faculty, adjustments to the assistantship responsibilities may be made to accommodate additional semesters of assistantship-funded teaching. Ph.D. students are not required to register for course credit when they teach courses, but they cannot earn course credit without registering for the appropriate course. For those wishing to enroll for course credit when engaged in assistantship-funded teaching, the appropriate course is MUS 8950 (Advanced Practicum in Music Education). Please note that enrollment in MUS 8950 for this purpose does not constitute elective credit within the Program of Study.

Part Two: Identification o The Ph.D. student will be asked to identify 25 items discussed in MUS These may include terms, people, movements, publications, philosophies, studies, and all manner of related topics within music education. Following successful completion of the Comprehensive Examination, Ph.D. students are required to form their Dissertation Advisory Committee. Instructions can be found online at the College of Education s website (select Student Services and then Forms, Policies & Regulations ).
14 13 Prospectus: The Preparatory Courses Each Ph.D. student will prepare a dissertation prospectus during the final semesters of course work in the program. The dissertation prospectus will be presented to the Doctoral Committee in both written and oral formats. Following distribution of the written document, the Ph.D. student will defend the prospectus in an oral lecture involving presentation software. The purpose of the defense is to ensure that the Ph.D. student is ready to begin formal work toward the dissertation project itself. Any required methodological review by the Georgia State University Institutional Review Board (IRB) can commence only after the prospectus has been successfully defended. Only work of high quality and superior scholarship will be deemed acceptable. A typical prospectus document is approximately fifty pages in length, though this is a highly variable parameter. The prospectus document characteristically consists of the first three chapters of the anticipated dissertation, but in all instances must include the following information: Context, problem, purpose, research questions & procedural outline (Chapter 1) Review and analysis of related literature (Chapter 2) Plan of Methodology and Analysis (Chapter 3) Ph.D. students must consult and carefully follow the current edition of the College of Education s Guide for Preparing Dissertations.
