NEC Collaboration and Programs

Courses at the New England Conservatory of Music
A reciprocal arrangement between Tufts University and the New England Conservatory of Music allows students at both institutions to select a limited number of courses at either school that may be applied toward their respective degrees. Students may not take a course at the conservatory if it is offered at Tufts. This agreement does not apply to summer school. Students must first receive permission from their own dean, then from the dean of the second institution.

Combined Degrees Program with New England Conservatory of Music
Music studies at Tufts are enhanced by the five-year double-degree program leading to a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree from Tufts and a Bachelor of Music degree from New England Conservatory. (Please consult the academic catalogue of the New England Conservatory for information about its programs.) Students interested in this program first must be admitted to both institutions; acceptance into the double-degree program is highly selective based on both academic and musical competence. Transfer students are not normally accepted into this program; students currently enrolled at either school may apply for admission to the other institution and place themselves in contention for a place in the program. Students may discontinue the program and continue towards completion of the preferred degree at the chosen institution.

The cost of the program is based on Tufts undergraduate tuition rates. For information about the program please contact Associate Dean Jean Herbert, NEC liaison at Tufts University (617-627-2000); or the Dean of Enrollment Services, Office of Admission, New England Conservatory of Music, 290 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02115.
