Overview

Master of Arts in Conducting

The Department of Music offers a Master of Arts degree in conducting designed to prepare students to conduct major symphonic and choral repertoire during their professional careers. In addition to developing practical technical skills, students study issues of performance practice and musical analysis, and gain experience in the preparation of performance materials.

Master of Arts candidates must be in residence for at least one academic year (typically two years), pass a reading exam in one foreign language (typically German, French, Italian, or Latin), and present a public concert and supporting written materials in lieu of a thesis.

Typical time to complete the Master of Arts degree is two years. Core course work requirements are the three pro-seminars in music plus at least three seminars and independent study (conducting lessons).
