Information for Berklee Graduate students on researching and assembling Culminating Experience Projects

Culminating Experience/Thesis: Berklee College of Music


Berklee master's students conclude their programs with a Culminating Experience/Thesis project. Whether creative, research-focused, or practical in nature, the culminating experience represents the highest expression of a student's learning at the graduate level. Students who received "with distinction" on their final project will be invited to submit their work to Berklee Archives' institutional repository for permanent public access.


Invited students are not obligated to submit their projects to the Archives. Likewise, the Archives is not obligated to accept submissions that do not conform to archival requirements. 

Students seeking comprehensive information about the Culminating Experience should refer to the Graduate Studies CE Webpage.
