The academic programs of Oberlin College are based in its two
divisions: The College of Arts and Sciences (2,200 students) and
the Conservatory of Music (650 students).
The College of Arts and Sciences offers a four-year undergraduate
program leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree. The Conservatory
of Music offers four-year undergraduate programs of professional
and academic studies leading to the Bachelor of Music degree, as
well as two-year programs leading to a Performance Diploma (undergraduate)
and an Artist Diploma (graduate).
A five-year Double-Degree Program leading to both the Bachelor
of Arts degree and the Bachelor of Music degree is also available.
The Conservatory also offers limited graduate programs leading
to the Master of Music (opera theater, conducting), the Master
of Music Education and the Master of Music Teaching degrees. All
of these are five-year programs integrated with specific undergraduate
Oberlin Bachelor of Music degree programs. The Master of Music
in Historical Performance program admits students with undergraduate
degrees from schools other than Oberlin.
Academic information differs in some cases between the College
of Arts and Sciences and the Conservatory of Music. For information
about degree programs, graduation requirements, advising and academic
standing, grading policies, major and minor study and other areas,

of Music or Double-Degree sections of the catalog.
