The Harvard’s dual degree programs are a five-year endeavor where you will receive both a Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) from Harvard College and a master’s degree from New England Conservatory or Berklee.

Students pursue a bachelor’s degree at Harvard while taking private lessons and preparatory classes at NEC or Berklee. In their fourth year, students complete Harvard’s bachelor’s requirements, and complete their master’s program in the fifth year.
