Music Associate in Arts Degree for Transfer
PROGRAM CODE: 2A31530
The Music Associate in Arts Degree for Transfer, also called the Music AA-T Degree, prepares students to transfer to California State University campuses that offer bachelor’s degrees in Music. Ed Code Section 66746-66749 states that students earning the Music AA-T Degree will be granted priority for admission as Music major to a local CSU, as determined by the CSU campus to which the student applies. This degree requires students to complete 60 CSU transferable units including completion of CSU GE or IGETC and 23 units in the major with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. Title 5 requires that students earn a grade of C or better in all major coursework. This degree is designed to prepare students to demonstrate competence and discipline in the study of music in all of its facets, read and audiate music, and demonstrate proficiency in ensemble skills and solo performance skills. While a baccalaureate degree is recommended for a possible career in music production, performance, and music education, completion of this curriculum will demonstrate commitment to the serious study of Music in practice and in theory, and provide comprehensive preparation for upper-division work. The Music AA-T Degree program requires 23 units in required courses and restricted electives as indicated below.
