Associate in Fine Arts in Music

Associate in Fine Arts in Music (A.F.A.)

Program Description

Are you an aspiring musician who is interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree in music?  Our Associate in Fine Arts in Music degree, consisting of a minimum of 60-61 semester hours, is designed for students who wish to complete the first two years of their bachelor’s degree in music at the community college and transfer to a four-year school to complete the last two years of a bachelor’s degree.  In addition to general education courses, students will have the opportunity to take music-related courses, including fundamentals of music, applied music, chorus, and music theory.  Community college graduates must obtain a grade of “C” or better in each course and an overall GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale in order to transfer to the four-year institution with junior status.  Courses may also transfer through bilateral agreements between institutions.  Starting your four-year degree journey at the community college saves you both time and money!
