The Associate of Science degree (Music) has been developed with the cooperation and support of Southern Oregon University (SOU). The degree is fully articulated with SOU’s Music program and allows students to transfer directly as juniors and to become admitted into the Music program at SOU with no loss of credits to pursue a baccalaureate degree.
The program offers an excellent balance of music and general education courses that support advanced study in the field of music. Students should contact the SOU Music Department early in the first year of their AS program to be advised about additional requirements and procedures for admission to the school or program.
Students should be aware that if they transfer before completing this degree, their courses will be evaluated individually toward the general education requirements in effect at SOU.
All students must pass a New Student Hearing before being accepted as a Music Major at SOU. The student’s applied level of study (MUP courses) will be set based on the audition.
Students must complete a minimum of 96 term credits of lower division collegiate courses with a minimum grade point of 2.0 and a grade of C or better.
Students interested in pursuing a baccalaureate degree related to Music at other institutions besides SOU should consider the Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree instead. The AAOT degree can facilitate a student completing their lower division coursework before transferring to complete their degree (although the AAOT may not satisfy all “program” requirements in the new setting). Interested students should consult with the Music Program Coordinator as well as Academic Advisers to maximize the Music Studies focus for their AAOT degree.
