Certification as a qualified Ward Method teacher requires successful completion of all four Ward courses:

  • MUS 543-01 = Ward Book I
  • MUS 543A-01 = Ward Book II
  • MUS 543B-01 = Ward Book III
  • MUS 543C-01 = Ward Book IV (Jr. High and High School)
  • MUS 547-01 = Gregorian Chant Practicum I
  • MUS 547A-01 = Gregorian Chant Practicum II

Intensive courses are offered every summer.
