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.
Earlier this year Berklee Online and Southern New Hampshire University announced a jointly offered online MBA in Music Business drawing on specialties of each institution.
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."
In addition to general ed courses, the Bachelor of Professional Studies of Music Business combines courses on music industry basics from touring to publishing with electives and specializations as well as core music studies courses.
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.
