There are many opportunities to combine the study of music at Peabody with other academic disciplines at Hopkins.

Double Degree Programs

The Peabody Conservatory and the Homewood schools of The Johns Hopkins University offer the opportunity for a limited number of students to pursue simultaneously a Bachelor of Music degree and either a Bachelor of Arts degree from the School of Arts and Sciences or a Bachelor of Science degree from the Whiting School of Engineering.

Students must be admitted independently to Peabody and one of the Homewood schools and be invited to participate in the Double Degree Program.

Auditions are held in February for entrance the following fall. Your individual course of study will be determined by discussions between advisors at Peabody Conservatory and your division at Homewood. Tuition will be the same as it is for the Homewood divisions.

Recording Arts and Sciences

This Peabody/Hopkins program is administered entirely by Peabody Conservatory. JHU students with an interest in classes associated with this program may cross register for them. Participation is on a space available basis.


With the approval of the appropriate dean of your division at Johns Hopkins, you may take advantage of the resources of both the Preparatory (pre-college) and Conservatory (college) branches of Peabody.

Lessons and ensemble studies at Peabody are on a “space available” basis. There is an advantage to signing up early. For details, an information sheet entitled “How to Cross Register to Peabody” is available from your academic advisor’s office.

Music as a Minor

The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences offers a music minor for students who have some training and background in music and wish to pursue their interest in a systematic way without getting their degree in the field. It consists of a selection of music courses including music history, theory, ensembles and/or lessons.

Students interested in the music minor should contact the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences.
