Performance Training and Professional Readiness

Students will find programs designed to maximize their potential and assure that, upon graduation, they will be professionally ready—that is, they will possess the skills and have the discipline and courage essential to thriving in a very competitive arena. Central to our students' experience at Boston Conservatory is their immersion in a truly multidisciplinary environment. Some fine schools have excellent music or theater or dance programs. We have all three. And we structure the intensive work that our students do in ways that maximize the benefits of multidisciplinary collaborations.

Dance, Music, and Theater Academics

In addition to rigorous performance and professional training, Boston Conservatory offers a strong academic curriculum in dance, music, and theater meant to provide strong foundations in theory, history, pedagogy, analysis, and critical thinking strategies. This emphasis on academics allows students to grasp the important components of their art form so they may honor the past, understand the present, and shape the future. 

Liberal Arts

Artistic training at Boston Conservatory is complemented by a rich liberal arts education. Learn more about the curriculum and the faculty.
