Our Mission

The mission of the Screen Scoring Department at Berklee College of Music is to offer an opportunity for students to learn the art, craft, and tools of scoring for a variety of media, with a professionally active and respected faculty that provides a comprehensive and innovative curriculum.

  • guide students to create using their own artistic voice within a collaborative endeavor.
  • introduce students to the rich, diverse community of scoring professionals, and prepare them to navigate the realities of a scoring career.
  • inspire students to be self-starters and lifelong learners.
  • prepare students to excel in both current and future interactive, immersive art forms that incorporate music.
  • empower students to shape the future of the art, bringing diverse perspectives and as-yet unheard sounds to life.
