CURRICULAR GUIDE

Associate in Applied Arts Degree

Curriculum Code: 0270  (Effective Fall 2001 - Summer 2006)

The Music Program enables students to transfer to a four-year institution
after completing studies in music theory, piano and applied lessons.  In
addition to academic music classes, the curriculum includes training in a
private instrument, performances with fine ensembles, and introduction to
computers and music.  Emphasis is placed on integrating skills acquisition
with performing opportunities.  Not all courses in this program transfer to
all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or
counselor before enrolling in any course.

This is a selective admission program.  In order to be considered as a
candidate for this program, students must meet basic admission requirements
beyond those required for admission to the college.

Students should see the "Course Descriptions" section of this catalog or the
Course Schedule for course prerequisite information.  Basic skills assessment
and advising information may be found on page 8 of this catalog.

General education is an important part of this program and includes a
mathematics competency requirement.  To fulfill the mathematics competency
requirement, students may need to complete specific course work in
mathematics.  For information on how to fulfill all general education
requirements, see page 23.

The admission requirements for this program may change each academic year.
