Welcome to the Yale Institute of Sacred Music – a premier center for the interdisciplinary study of sacred music, worship, and the related arts. Partnering with the Yale School of Music and Yale Divinity School, as well as other academic and professional units at Yale, the ISM prepares its students for careers in church music and other sacred music, pastoral ministry, performance, and scholarship.
