Associate of Fine Arts - Music Emphasis

Students in Music Class

The Associate of Fine Arts degree, Music emphasis (Tennessee Transfer Pathway), prepares the student for transfer to their chosen four-year college. The courses included here parallel the basic first two years of the four-year music curriculum to enable the student to major in music education, church music, music business, or performance.

The DSCC Music degree program was changed from an Associate of Science degree to an Associate of Fine Arts degree starting with the 2012 - 2013 catalog.  Students who started a music concentration using a previous catalog should refer to those requirements to complete their degree.

To facilitate success in this program, all students should enroll in ORN 1010 Orientation: Learning to Succeed during their first semester at DSCC.

Note: During the sophomore year all students planning to teach should meet the PRAXIS Core Academic Skills for Educators or ACT testing requirements for their transfer institution.
