Getting Started

A Master of Music degree (MM) in music education or choral conducting can be completed in just three summers. You’ll learn from and interact with some of the nation’s leading music educators, performers, and conductors. Both programs are fully accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music. Course details are provided below. You may also take individual courses without seeking a degree by enrolling as a Lifelong Education student through MSU.

Scholarship assistance for Music Education majors is available through the New Directions Summer Scholars Program and for Choral Conducting conductors through choral scholarships for out-of-state students.
