Program of Study

The AA in Music degree is appropriate for students planning to transfer into a four-year program in any discipline in music. Students should be aware that although only 12 hours from this list are required as a minimum, students should take more music coursework in order to transfer into most music degrees as a junior. Students should meet with their faculty advisor for more information.

Please note that most of the concentration courses, as listed, are part of the state-wide Transfer Assurance Guide and are designed so that students will take classes from each grouping, each term (Group B–only 2 semesters total). An entire sequence must be completed and passed for courses that are sequential in nature (Groups A and B). Students interested in a Music concentration should also select courses used to meet the general college degree requirements and the Ohio Transfer Module.

To make an informed selection of Arts & Humanities, Social Science, and Natural Science electives, Terra State advises the transfer-intending student to consult the receiving institution to ensure maximum transferability and application of credits.

Recommended science courses include 100-level environmental science, chemistry, and physics classes. Terra State Faculty recommendations for this degree include HUM 1410 Introduction to Theatre for their Humanities election.

Since many four-year universities require a foreign language component, it is recommended that students pursuing this degree consider enrolling up to 16 semester hours and competencies through the second year level in a foreign language. Students should contact their transfer institution to clarify their foreign language requirements.

Students should meet with an advisor for appropriate course selection.

Note: Electives to be used for Mathematics, Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, and additional transfer information are located in the college catalog.

All students graduating from Terra State Community College with an Associate degree of any kind will be functionally proficient in common computer operations and applications. Students should see their academic advisor or academic division office for further details.
