The conducting program provides specialized training for graduate students who intend to become professional conductors, and courses for graduate and undergraduate students who wish to develop the skills and sensitivities required for many musical disciplines. The conducting major is offered for graduate students only, at the Masters level for orchestral conductors and at the Masters, Professional Studies, and Doctoral levels for choral conductors. The Graduate programs in orchestral conducting and choral conducting are highly selective, allowing each student extensive experience with MSM ensembles.

Specific courses and degree sequence plans can be found in the Course Catalog.
