In addition to the Bachelor of Music in choral music education, voice performance, music technology, and music management, the School of Music is proud to offer the Master of Music degree in choral conducting. The conducting students benefit from an energetic choral faculty, an abundance of podium time with multiple choirs and ample performance opportunities.
