Graduate Performance Diploma in Composition


Program Overview

After completing an undergraduate or graduate degree in music, students may wish to continue building their compositional portfolio before pursuing an advanced degree or a career in the industry. Boston Conservatory at Berklee's Graduate Performance Diploma (G.P.D.) is a two-year program that provides concentrated artistic training without the academic coursework required of a master's program. Because the G.P.D. program is designed to maximize students' time spent creating artistic work while minimizing their time in the classroom, students entering the program are expected to be strongly self-motivated and well versed in their knowledge of music. Therefore, an undergraduate degree in music is required to be eligible for enrollment.
