BSED/BMus or BSED/BAMus in Education and Social Policy and in Music

 

The dual degree program in music and education and social policy offers students the opportunity to earn a bachelor of music/bachelor of arts in music and a bachelor of science in education and social policy in five years, developing their passion for music as a tool for creating change in learning environments, human relationships, organizations, and the field of social policy. Students may select any of the Bienen School’s undergraduate majors and any of SESP’s undergraduate majors except secondary teaching.

Dual degree students must complete all requirements for both degrees (see the double counting allowances in the chart below) and the Undergraduate Registration Requirement. Each school enforces all of its policies regarding requirements.

Current students interested in pursuing the dual degree in music and education and social policy should contact the assistant dean for student affairs in the Bienen School of Music and the assistant dean for student affairs in SESP.
