Online Graduate Music Courses
#1
Howdy hive mind, 

You were all very instrumental (lol) in helping me figure out a way to complete my BA in Music through TESU. I have been totally over the moon, but now I would like to research a way to get my MM through online methods.

I'd like to be able to get it at as low cost as possible. The best I have found so far is Tarleton State University (36 hours) at about $20k - That's too rich for my blood.

I live in Texas so that might be a consideration. I don't know if there are test out ways into graduate credits? That would be fine with me.

Thanks in advance,
BA Music at TESU  120/120  All transfer credit - Graduation September 2018

The Institutes - Ethics and CPCU Code - 2017
Sophia - Developing Effective Teams - 2017
Study.com - Personal Finance, American Gov 102, World Religions, Geology 101 - 2017
UTPB - Jazz, Rock, Pop II, History of Film Music, Jazz History - 2017
TESU - Capstone - 2018

It's been a few years now, but I spent a bit of time researching this for my brother. Online grad degrees in anything music are tough - there just aren't a lot of them. At the time, I could only find 3-4 (I'm sure there are more now) but throwing in the filter of under 20k probably makes this a very big challenge imo.

Of course Berklee has a few options (not cheap) https://online.berklee.edu/music-degrees

Also try searching PhD. At the time that I conducted my search, the PhD option seemed to offer several hybrid experiences, so that might be something to consider.

Music Ed would be fine. Theory or comp would be fine too. 
Mostly though looking to see if there are alternate ways to get these grad credits.

Unless you can find music education courses from VESi, PBS Teacherline, Advanced Courses, and similar teacher education websites, there really aren't any alternative ways to earn graduate credits. Some schools award graduate credits for certifications, but these are in business and IT.
