Dual Degree Program

Some students wish to undertake the bachelor of music degree, but have such strong interests in another field that they also wish to complete the bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree. The fact that Eastman is a school within the University of Rochester makes such combined degree programs possible.

Eastman is one of the professional schools of the University. In addition to Eastman, the University has a division known as the College, which offers the Bachelor of Arts degree and the Bachelor of Science degree. Applicants who wish to obtain both a Bachelor of Music degree from Eastman and a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree from the College must complete both the Eastman application and a College application.

This autonomy of admission processes gives each school the latitude to enroll its ideal students. At Eastman we define our ideal student as a passionate and talented musician with a high level of musical and academic achievement, and with the self-discipline and intellectual curiosity to become a successful professional in many diverse career paths.

Once applicants are successfully admitted to Eastman and to the College according to the individual criteria of each division, they are considered dual degree students of the University.

More information about dual-degree study is available through Eastman’s Office of Academic Affairs and on the University website.
