college admissions process

Studying music in college

Musically gifted students who want to pursue their talent in college must decide whether they want to attend a Conservatory, where they will earn a BFA or BM, or attend a university or liberal arts college with a strong music department, where they will earn a BA. Each route has its advantages and disadvantages, and the application process varies in terms of what is required for a successful admission. MajoringInMusic.com is a great place for students to start their college research – the website allows students to explore schools by region and majors. The website is also a resource for summer programs and has some interesting articles about how music majors have adapted to virtual learning in the COVID-19 era.
