Undergraduate Degrees online
Berklee Online's current online offerings range from individual courses to certificate programs in specific specialties. They've also experimented with free classes and even recently released a BitTorrent bundle of music lessons.
Yesterday they announced the launch of two Bachelor of Professional Studies programs in music production and music business. Applications begin October 7 with the first class starting fall 2014.
Annual tuition is $16, 500, 60 percent cheaper than a traditional degree at Berklee College of Music. In addition, both previous college credits and life experience can be applied to the program which is "especially targeted to adult learners who have earned previous college credit and/or associate's degrees but do not hold bachelor's degrees."
The Bachelor of Professional Studies of Music Production includes such basics as microphone recording techniques and mixing and mastering as well as relevant electives, specializations and music theory courses.
