Contact & Visit

Scheduling your visit

We encourage you to visit during the academic year so that you can observe a concert or rehearsal and meet current students. Visit our Academic and Concert calendars before scheduling your visit.


Are you a prospective undergraduate?

Yale School of Music is a graduate school. Yale University does not offer a Bachelor of Music degree. Students interested in studying music at the undergraduate level apply to Yale College for the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree and can major in music while at Yale or study music even if they major in another academic area. Many talented musicians come to Yale and continue playing music at a very high level. There are abundant musical opportunities and resources available to undergraduates across the University.

Prospective undergraduates should refer to Yale College’s visitor information for campus tours. The Department of Music is the home of undergraduate music majors. Click here for more information about the undergraduate music major.

Yale School of Music offers a B.A./M.M. program for which current Yale College students can apply during their junior year at Yale. Interested Yale College students should contact the YSM admissions office. As of the fall of 2017, the B.A./M.M. program is also open to prospective Yale College students who can apply to Yale College and Yale School of Music simultaneously. Applicants must be successfully admitted to both Yale College and the Yale School of Music to participate in the five-year B.A./M.M. program.
