This emphasis is not currently a part of the Tennessee Transfer Pathway which is part of the "The Complete College Act of 2010", and therefore; it may not be fully transferable. Since general education and major requirements vary from one transfer institution to another, it is essential that transfer students decide on a transfer institution as soon as possible and refer to the major requirements in that institution's catalog when planning a program of study. The requirements of the emphasis may be modified upon request to meet the requirements in that major at a specific transfer college or university. Students must successfully complete placement requirements in music theory, ear training, and piano at the university where transfer is planned. Student must also successfully complete required auditions as appropriate.
If pursuing the A.A. degree, complete an additional 6 credit hours in a one-year sequence of the same foreign language. Please check websites of university departments of foreign language for additional information regarding advisement available to students.
Students and advisors should run a degree audit from myChargerNet each semester to confirm classes are applicable to the program of study.
