The AA-T Music can be a high-unit degree, depending on which ensemble (or ensembles) a student chooses to participate in. To complete this degree in two years, most AA-T Music students will find it necessary to complete some of their General Education coursework during the winter or spring intersession(s).
A maximum of two GE courses may be taken in a single intersession.
A student on the two-year plan should expect his or her semester load to be at or near the maximum for a full-time student (18 units), even if he or she takes GE courses during intersession as recommended above.
Students who wish to pursue the AA-T Music Degree but are not "college-ready" should visit Counseling in order to formulate an academic plan. The Music Department advises students who are not "college-ready" to complete all remedial English and math coursework before initiating a music degree plan.
