Music

Associate of Arts: Music




The A.A. degree is not meant to be a terminal degree, and the career needs of most students will lead them to seek at least a four-year degree after obtaining our A.A. degree. The curriculum areas are suggested as aids in program planning and may be modified by the student in order to meet specific requirements of the intended four-year program at a university.


There are no special requirements for admission into this program. Please refer to the TMCC Admission section for future students.
