Off-campus Study Options

Off-campus study opportunities for music majors are available through Reed College's approved programs. Sites with music courses taught in English include: the Universities of Sussex and East Anglia in England; Trinity College Dublin; Howard University, which offers an array of music courses with particular strength in African-American music; and Sarah Lawrence College, offering both strong music courses and proximity to the music 'scene' in New York city. Music students with requisite language background can also study music on Reed programs in Germany, France, Spain, Ecuador and Costa Rica. It is recommended that music majors plan to be enrolled on campus in the spring semester of their junior year.
