The Glenn Korff School of Music offers both a Master's degree and a Doctoral degree in the conducting area (choral, orchestral, wind band).

Applicants to the conducting program should be individuals who wish to join a community of scholars, performers and pedagogues dedicated to the study and practice of conducting as an applied performance medium. Enrollment in the conducting studio is intentionally limited and auditions are competitive. Typically, the studio includes a small number of students (a variable combination of M.M. and D.M.A. candidates), and therefore a high degree of musicianship, scholarship, and professionalism, as well as an engaging interpersonal style, are essential. The objective of the program is to develop skillful, expressive conductors who are prepared to succeed in both professional and academic settings.
