Music Major Program

Associate in Arts Degree (AA) in Music
The AA degree is a comprehensive program of study designed to provide the music student with a strong, well-rounded foundation in:
  1. Harmony & Musicianship - written and analytical skills and aural training (ear training); and
  2. Creative Expression - performance and composition opportunities throughout the course of study
The Music Department offers the music major a full two-year (4-semester) sequential course of study in both harmony and aural skills. In addition, each semester the music major student will be involved in one or more of the diverse ensemble and performance class offerings, with performance opportunities both on and off campus.

See Degree & Certificates for details.
