Home to a thriving cohort of graduate students, the University of Washington offers MM and DMA degree programs in choral conducting in a program emphasizing hands-on experience in conducting large choral ensembles in on- and off-campus performances.
Students in the graduate choral conducting program are immersed in a hands-on, individually focused conducting experience stressing forward-thinking research in technique and pedagogy. Students are given conducting, teaching, and leadership opportunities each quarter in residence, through work with ensembles, choral festivals, visits from renowned choral scholars, and international touring.
Graduate Support and Career Opportunities
All graduate students receive scholarship support or TA funding while working toward their degrees, and Seattle’s vast network of community and church choirs offer many employment opportunities off campus. Recent graduates of the program are working at tenure-track academic positions across the country or leading top community choirs or church programs.
