College 3 x 5: Music Conservatories within Small Liberal Arts Colleges
There are many ways for student musicians to continue their music study in college without following a strict path toward becoming a professional musician. Liberal arts colleges with adjacent music conservatories – preparatory programs for professional musicians – offer the best of both worlds. Students may take music and voice lessons with professors or upper level students and the campus is infused with musical performances by students and guest artists. Here are five colleges, each with a world-class music conservatory accessible to students across all disciplines.
1500 students on a picturesque campus overlooking the Fox River, strong programs in Business, Econ, Psych, Politics, Biology.
Cooperative degree programs include a 3-2 Engineering program (with Columbia, RPI, and Wash U in St. Louis), Forestry and Environmental Studies (with Duke University), Occupational Therapy (with Wash U in St. Louis), and a five-year double degree in liberal arts and music.
By the numbers: 73% admit rate; Mid-range SAT scores: CR 560-700, M580-710. Note that Lawrence University is test-optional; incoming students have an average high school GPA of 3.7.
