Music for Transfer

The AA-T in Music for Transfer is designed to prepare students to transfer to a California State University (CSU) with the intent of earning a B.A. in music. Students who earn this degree will have the fundamental knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in a music degree at the baccalaureate level. The curriculum combines music theory, applied studies, and performance at the lower division level.


Music Education

This degree program offers lower division preparation for students who want to pursue a bachelor’s degree in music education and a California teaching credential in music. The primary emphasis is to prepare students for transfer to four-year music education programs.
