Bachelor of Music: Majors

Berklee College of Music offers undergraduate music studies in 15 majors covering a wide range of industry areas from performance and composition to entrepreneurship and production.

Berklee now offers a new Bachelor of Arts degree that gives students a foundation in design thinking and strategic leadership, without the emphasis on the core music curriculum. There is no audition to apply.

Music 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.

Double Majors

Students may combine many of Berklee College of Music's 15 majors, depending on the nature of the program. The double major program requires a five-year course of study and is available to both degree and diploma candidates.
