The graduate program in Music (M.Mus.) offers three areas of concentration:
Choral or Instrumental Conducting
The emphasis is upon full professional preparation in a strong academic context. Students in each area are eligible to be considered for training with local professional organizations.
In addition, students must have reading knowledge of one language other than English upon graduation (normally French, German or Italian).
Entrance to the Master of Music programs is by application and audition. Please note that each concentration requires varied application material. Students who are admitted to the Masters Program will write a separate theory diagnostic exam before classes commence.
