bachelor's degree options

The New York Conservatory has articulation agreements with three universities. As a National Association of Schools of Theatre (NAST)-accredited school, our credits transfer widely, but these three schools have pre-arranged agreements with us that allow our graduates, when accepted, to seemlessly transition into junior year in a four-year Bachelor’s Degree program.
