Catalog Year: 2018

Associate in Fine Arts-Music

Program Description

These requirements are effective for new students admitted to ECC beginning summer, 1998 or later. Music Performance Emphasis Any community or junior college student who intends to major in music for the baccalaureate degree is strongly encouraged to complete the Associate in Fine Arts (A.F.A.) degree in music, not the Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree or the Associate in Science (A.S.) degree prior to transfer. To transfer as a junior into a baccalaureate program with a major in Music, students should select the option described in consultation with a faculty member in the music department. Completion of the A.F.A. degree, however, does not fulfill the requirements of the Illinois General Education Core Curriculum, nor does it fulfill the requirements for the A.A. or the A.S. degree. Therefore, students will need to fulfill the general education requirements of the institution to which they transfer. Transfer admission is competitive. Completion of this option alone does not guarantee admission either to the baccalaureate program or to upper-division or specialty music courses. Students may be required to demonstrate skill level through auditions and placement testing at the institution to which they transfer. In some colleges and universities, a baccalaureate degree may also require competency in a foreign language. The General Education courses required for the A.F.A. degree are approved by the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI); however, the structure of the A.F.A. degree does not meet the minimum IAI general education core requirements.
