Music — Conducting: MMus

Faculty conductors mentor a select group of graduate students through an integrated curriculum of academics, teaching, and performance.

The two-year master’s degree programs in choral, orchestral, and wind conducting are designed for experienced teacher-conductors to hone their craft.

In all three programs, a small cohort of graduate students works together in an engaging, challenging, and supportive environment.

Over the last 10 years, all graduates have either found music-related employment or progressed to prominent doctoral programs.
