The Conservatory of Music and the College of Arts and Sciences have collaborated to develop exciting new approaches to the study of music.

Starting in Fall 2020, students in both the college and the conservatory can deepen and widen their understanding of music by learning about it in a variety of contexts and disciplines through five new interdisciplinary programs.

These five interdivisional courses of study, open to students in both the College and Conservatory, are designed to complement a student’s major. Students can have an academic experience that encompasses both depth of study in a well-established field with an experimental curriculum in an emerging area.

Program Administration

Oversight for these new minors and integrative concentration is with the Conservatory College Interdivisional Curricular Committee (CCICC).
