More Information

Bachelor of Music Equivalency

A bachelor's degree in music from an accredited college, university, conservatory, or its demonstrated equivalent is required for admission to the graduate division of the Jacobs School of Music.

Students with a non-degree-based conservatory education (resulting in an advanced diploma in performance, music history, or music theory) or with an undergraduate degree in an area other than music who can demonstrate bachelor's equivalency in music may be considered for entrance into a master's program. Applicants in these categories may be admitted to the Jacobs School of Music as non-degree graduate students and admitted to a degree program when bachelor's equivalency in music is demonstrated.

Bachelor's equivalency may be demonstrated by a successful audition or interview in the major field and by satisfactory grades on the Graduate Entrance Examinations in music history and music theory or corresponding graduate review courses. Equivalency is determined by the director of graduate studies.

The Graduate Entrance Examinations are tests given by the Jacobs School of Music during the orientation week that precedes every semester (typically late August, early January and early June).
