Overview

For students with a strong interest in conducting, our five-year program combines graduate studies in conducting with an undergraduate major in performance, composition, music education, electronic and computer music, or musicology. Upon successful completion of an audition, students formally enter this program at the end of their junior year.

Graduate studies in conducting may have an instrumental or a choral emphasis. Students interested in this program should consult with the Division of Conducting and Ensembles during their first year. Once completed, students receive both the BMus and the MM degrees.
