Degrees and Diplomas
In the bachelor of music degree program, studies in your major are combined with liberal arts courses, affording you a broad context in which to study and pursue your objectives in music.
The professional diploma program is devoted entirely to the study of music. It does not include liberal arts courses, and is not offered for music therapy and music education majors. If accepted to the diploma program, you can switch to the degree program while enrolled at Berklee College of Music if you meet certain academic requirements.
Students may combine many of Berklee College of Music's 12 majors, depending on the nature of the program. The dual major program requires a five-year course of study and is available to both degree and diploma candidates.
