Course Code: OMBUS-693

Accepting applications for the inaugural Sept. 2018 class!

3-Credit, Graduate Level Course

All master's programs at Berklee College of Music conclude with a culminating experience, which represents the synthesis of all that students have learned in their program. Through the culminating experience, students make a creative contribution to, and/or define and solve a problem that exists in the profession. This contribution may take the form of a research, creative, or practical project. Regardless of the form the culminating experience takes, it represents the highest expression of the students’ learning at the master’s level. In this first culminating experience course, students begin implementing their approved proposal for their experience, with the expectation that the student has completed a first draft by the end of the course.
