What if students’ parents are pressuring them to go to a liberal arts college instead?
Tell the parents to give them some slack & see how they progress at a school or their choice.
Involve your parents in the research process. Understand the difference between BA and BFA programs. Look into the requirements and opportunities offered by liberal arts colleges as well as specialized arts programs. Visit a couple liberal arts colleges and compare them to the arts or conservatory programs you have visited. Don’t eliminate liberal arts colleges without giving them (and your parents) an opportunity. Personally, I’ve had students attend both type of schools and there is no “best program.” You and your family need to decide what is right for you. Attending a liberal arts college may represent a happy medium.
