You shouldn’t have to choose between your passions for music and another discipline. The Dual Degree at Eastman (DDE) program at the University of Rochester combines the resources of the College and the Eastman School of Music. It allows you to combine your interest in music with a specific academic discipline offered at the College.
For this program, you would apply separately to the world-renowned Eastman School of Music and Arts, Sciences & Engineering, and pursue a bachelor of music and a bachelor of arts or science simultaneously. Typically, a DDE student can complete the requirements for both degrees in five years. During that time, you’ll receive focused counseling and opportunities to work closely with esteemed faculty. You also get to choose which campus (the River Campus or the Eastman School) to live on. The two campuses are just a few miles apart, and frequent shuttle buses make it easy for you to commute between them.
Eastman School of Music
Ranked as one of the top music schools in the world, the Eastman School is just minutes from the River Campus and grants you access to world-class faculty and facilities.
