Conservatory of Music

The Conservatory of Music of Brooklyn College unequivocally supports a creative learning environment of diversity, equity, and inclusion. In recognition of the harmful effects of historical and ongoing biases, we are committed to dismantling social and cultural barriers and are in solidarity with anti-racist efforts at Brooklyn College and beyond. Brooklyn College is located on the unceded lands of the Munsee Lenape and Canarsie people.

Situated amid the vibrant cultural milieu and ethnically diverse hub that is Brooklyn, the Conservatory of Music of Brooklyn College offers undergraduate degrees in music, music composition, music education, and performance; graduate degrees in composition, media scoring, musicology, performance, and sonic arts; advanced certificates in music education and performance; and a post-master’s advanced diploma in performance.
