Eastman’s performance-intensive Undergraduate degree programs develop comprehensive musical skills and literacy. The value of an Eastman academic degree is demonstrated by the number of graduates who hold positions in professional orchestras, bands, chamber ensembles, opera companies, conservatories and college music departments, school music programs, community music schools, the recording industry, the musical instrument and technologies industry, and many other fields.
An Eastman student’s experience is further enriched by opportunities to earn certificates and diplomas in specific areas, and by special programs that add depth to our innovative and detailed curricula.
A certificate is awarded for pre-professional activity, such as outstanding performance (Performer’s Certificate or Artist’s Certificate) or intensive co-curricular work. Certificates are restricted to students enrolled in an Eastman degree program.
A certificate program consists of a prescribed curriculum that ranges from 16-25 credits, including components such as applied music, academic coursework, independent study, ensembles, and in some cases, an internship experience.
The undergraduate program now includes a Certificate of Achievement in Arts Leadership and a Certificate of Achievement in World Music. Other new programs are being developed, always with the goal of providing our students with a top-quality education that is both innovative and relevant.
