  • Musical Luncheon Series: CIM Alumni Giving Back

    May 25, 2016, 11:15 pm
    Mixon Hall

    Many CIM alumni stay in Cleveland after graduation. They’re performers and musical entrepreneurs building their own music ensembles, series and festivals and bringing the joy of music to the community in new and creative ways.  Join us as they share their talent and experiences.  Our host is pianist, Shuai Wang.

The intimacy of a conservatory with big school benefits -- that's what CIM offers our students thanks to a special partnership with our neighbor, Case Western Reserve University (CWRU).

Known as a leader in engineering, medicine, and law, CWRU is also one of the top schools for musicology in the world. For nearly half a century, CIM and CWRU have used our educational partnership, the Joint Music Program (JMP), to share collective resources, focusing on the strengths of each institution. It's so seamless that many students and faculty don't even realize the partnership has a formal name!

Major in more than music

Here's how it works. As a CIM student, you'll take your music history and non-music electives in the humanities and sciences at CWRU. Meanwhile, CWRU students take music lessons as well as performance, chamber music, theory, and eurhythmics classes at CIM.

Many CIM students pursue a minor at CWRU. You can even commit to the dual degree (see below), receiving diplomas for both a Bachelor's of Music from CIM and a Bachelor of Science or Art from CWRU.

Beyond the classroom and concert hall

The Joint Music Program goes beyond music instruction and education. We share resources and facilities with CWRU, as well. Read more about the fitness facilities and student services you'll be able to access.

Dual Degree Program with CWRU

This five-year combination program leads to two undergraduate degrees — a Bachelor of Music degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music and a second degree in a major offered at Case Western Reserve University. If you're interested, you should apply only to CIM. We cooperate with CWRU to handle all matters relating to admission, financial aid, tuition, room and board, and registration. Even if you were to apply independently to CWRU, any financial aid they offer would not be applicable to the dual degree arrangement.
