Majors


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 almost entirely devoted to the study of music. It includes few 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.

Dual Majors

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.
