Dynamic, innovative, creative, global, and bold. A place that embraces improvisation and innovation.

Berklee is a singular institution that has grown and built on its roots in jazz, connection to the music of the African diaspora, and dedication to contemporary music. The institution continues to integrate and find connections between its historical roots and the contemporary worlds of music, theater, and dance. Berklee is a place where artists come together to innovate and co-create and where artistic and cultural diversity is embraced and celebrated. This ethos permeates all aspects of Berklee – from teaching and learning to administration to governance – and is fundamental to the Berklee experience.

Just as it nurtures the creative and career potential of the world’s most inspired artists, Berklee continually cultivates its own promise – stretching, growing, and reinventing itself in a rapidly changing world. In recent years Berklee has opened a campus in Valencia, Spain; grown Berklee Online into the world’s largest and most celebrated online music school; partnered with the City of New York to establish a center for Berklee at the storied Power Station Studios in Midtown Manhattan; and partnered with the Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism to launch Berklee’s first educational programs in the Arab world at the Berklee Abu Dhabi Center. In 2016, back home in Boston, the Boston Conservatory joined forces with Berklee College of Music, establishing a performing arts training institution unparalleled in its breadth and depth. The combined institution – Berklee – is an education powerhouse with global reach and vast cultural impact.

At Berklee, students explore interdisciplinary approaches to music, dance, theater, film, business, entrepreneurship, education, technology, and more. Youth programs under the Berklee City Music and Berklee Global Partners programs reach underserved classrooms throughout the U.S. and beyond. With students and alumni from more than 100 nations and educational partners across the world, Berklee forges connections among art forms, musical traditions, and technologies to build a dynamic, sustainable, diverse, and collaborative global arts community. Diversity in all its forms is a source of strength for the institution.

Newsweek recently ranked Berklee College of Music as third among all U.S. colleges that “offer an exceptional artistic atmosphere.” In 2017, Billboard listed Berklee as an “Elite Music Business School Shaping the Industry’s Future,” highlighting Berklee’s growth in Valencia and its music business degree programs. The Luxonomist ranked Berklee’s campuses in Boston and Valencia as the top two music colleges in the world. Backstage magazine, the leading resource for actors, singers, dancers, and associated performing arts professionals, wrote that the Boston Conservatory is widely recognized as the best program for contemporary dance.

During the past year, stories about Berklee have appeared in the Boston Globe, NPR, New York Times, Billboard, Playbill, Rolling Stone, PBS, The Guardian, LA Times, Downbeat, Variety, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Broadway World, and more.
