Berklee College of Music is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and authorized under U.S. federal law to enroll nonimmigrant students and to train veterans under the G.I. Bill of Rights.
The graduate studies programs that have been implemented on Berklee’s campus in Valencia, Spain, are accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and also by Spanish educational authorities. Therefore, the programs are valid throughout the European Higher Education Area. The master of music degree program in scoring for film, television, and video games and the master of arts degree program in global entertainment and music business have been implemented under affiliation with the Universitat Politècnica de València. This authorization is coordinated by the Instituto Superior de Enseñanzas Artísticas de la Comunitat Valenciana (ISEA-CV), the Valencian Community Institute for Higher Education in the Arts.
The master of music degree in contemporary performance (interpretación contemporánea en estudio) has been implemented by Berklee in Valencia itself, without affiliation, after being granted license to offer higher education in music by Spanish education authorities as an independent program of education in the arts (music). Approval is carried with assistance of ISEA-VC and through two accreditation agencies: the Valencia Accreditation Agency (AVAP) and the accreditation agency of the Ministry of Education at the central government in Madrid (ANECA). With approval by Spanish education authorities, the programs also qualify as approved programs of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA).
