Holland College signs agreement with Boston Conservatory

Michael O’Grady, Vice President of Innovation, Enterprise and Strategic Development for Holland College, left, Larry Simpson, Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs/Provost at Berklee and Cathy Young, Executive Director, Boston Conservatory at Berklee, sign the articulation agreement.Holland College has signed an agreement with Boston Conservatory at Berklee that provides up to 44 credits to graduates from Holland College’s two-year Dance Performance program when they enroll in the Conservatory’s Bachelor of Fine Arts Contemporary Dance Performance program, reducing the amount of time it will take students to complete the degree.

Founded in 1867, Boston Conservatory grants undergraduate and graduate degrees in dance, music, and theater, and it is recognized as having the best contemporary dance program in the United States. In 2016, the Conservatory merged with the renowned Berklee organization, which also includes Berklee College of Music, Berklee College of Music’s Campus in Valencia, Spain, and Berklee Online, creating an unparalleled learning environment for the performing arts.

This partnership with Boston Conservatory is an extension of an agreement Holland College signed with Berklee College of Music more than five years ago for students in the Music Performance program. The Dance Performance and Music Performance programs are part of the School of Performing Arts, a partnership between Holland College and Confederation Centre of the Arts.

The agreements enable students to move seamlessly, and in a cost-effective way, from one post-secondary institution to the other, said Michael O’Grady, vice president of Innovation, Enterprise and Strategic Development for Holland College. “We are thrilled to be able to offer our Performing Arts students and graduates these amazing degree pathways. Students can begin their education with us knowing that they are gaining access to almost limitless opportunities.”
