Music, Associate of Arts in Music

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) allows a community college to combine a Field of Study (FOS) and a portion of the Core Curriculum, including government and history, to create a 60 SCH degree. The Associate of Arts (AA) in Music is a combination of the Music FOS and the College Core Curriculum.

The College designed the AA in Music to apply to Bachelor of Music (BM), Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Music Education (BMEd), or other baccalaureate-level music degrees as deemed appropriate by the awarding institution.
