Enrollment in the following courses will prepare the student for transfer to a baccalaureate level music program in music education, performance, business, therapy, technology, studio recording, or elementary education with a music option. Students should consult their advisor for a plan of study that meets their programmatic needs. The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans.  These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree.

PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer.  They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC.  Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.
