Students preparing to enter college may have a love of music, but many don’t realize the vast career opportunities that await music graduates. In fact, national statistics have shown that approximately 66 percent of undergraduate music majors are accepted into medical school—while just 44 percent of biochemistry majors earn admittance.
“There are few things in life that help to define a person as much as their style of music. As the world of music has evolved and expanded, so have educational opportunities within the music field,” says Bearshare.com’s head of content marketing. “With the incredible opportunities out there for music graduates and the innovative programs being offered by some of the world’s leading educational institutions, we wanted to create a resource to help students pinpoint the programs most in line with their career goals.”
Music education has become incredibly widespread, with many of the U.S.’s leading institutions offering at least a single music major option. Many institutions have Conservatories which have been a part of the culture for decades, some nearly 100 years. Degree programs are reflecting the overall evolution of music, as well, with newer degrees focused on areas like Digital Music and Music Therapy.
Students graduating with a degree in music aren’t limited to the music field as a career path. Many students go on to combine their education in music with educational certifications or business degrees which enable them to tackle the challenging worlds of music production or journalism. In addition, today’s music programs provide students with ample opportunities to perform under some of the world’s most-renowned faculty members and with members of prestigious groups such as the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic.
Choosing a higher education institution is very much a personal decision. With this list of 100 of the most respected programs in the U.S., students will be able to easily pinpoint a program within their preferred geographic region as well as one offering the right educational opportunities in line with their future career plans.
