Music Education Majors: More Information

Webinar for Incoming Music Education Majors

In addition to the information on the main incoming students page, we offer a special webinar for our music education majors to assist with course registration and more. This webinar includes details about many of the steps you should take to ensure a successful transition to Gettysburg and the music education major and is an opportunity for you to meet your advisors and fellow classmates.
