This program is a THECB-approved Field of Study.
The field of study curriculum for music is designed to apply to the Bachelor of Music degree but may also be applied to the Bachelor of Arts or other baccalaureate-level music degrees as deemed appropriate by the awarding institution. This field of study curriculum shall consist of 35 lower-division semester credit hours in the area of concentration and 3 hours of Music Literature in the Core Curriculum. Transfer of credit in ensemble, applied study, and theory/aural skills shall be on a course-for-course basis. Transferring students who complete the field of study curriculum must satisfy the competency and proficiency requirements of the receiving institution. Transferring students shall not be required to repeat courses transferred as part of the field of study curriculum. Courses selected for inclusion in the field of study curriculum are those considered to be common to lower division study for most music degrees. Receiving institutions may require transfer students in specialized programs (e.g., jazz studies, performance, composition, music therapy, etc.) to take additional degree-specific lower-division courses that are not included in the field of study curriculum.
