Notes


*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed college coursework at other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101  in the first semester at CCBC. This is a 1-credit class, and it does not count towards the number of credits required for a degree or certificate. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) for this requirement to be waived.

 

**Most MUSA courses with course numbers between 101 and 291 fulfill the Applied Music requirement. However, the following classes cannot be used to fulfill the requirement: MUSA 110MUSA 120MUSA 130MUSA 140MUSA 150MUSA 160.

***These courses can also be used to fulfill General Education electives.

Transfer Pattern Description


These degree patterns are designed to help students transfer to colleges and universities that offer a baccalaureate degree with a major in Music. Beyond the General Education requirements and other degree requirements, program requirements, and electives, this pattern should be considered in light of the requirements of the selected transfer institution. Students should consult with a transfer coordinator or an advisor for information about specific requirements.

It is strongly recommended that incoming Music students be advised by the Music Program coordinator. Students should be aware that not all Music courses are offered every semester, and although the transfer pattern follows a two-year plan, students who work more than 15 hours per week or have other major obligations outside of school are advised to take fewer courses each semester over a longer period of time. Students who work 25 hours or more are advised to take fewer than 12 credits each semester. These degree patterns are designed to help students transfer to colleges and universities that offer a baccalaureate degree with a major in Music. Students should contact the institution to which they intend to transfer in order to ensure a smooth program articulation.

CCBC is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music. This transfer pattern follows guidelines established by that organization and identifies courses required for NASM certification.

The mission of the Music program of The Community College of Baltimore County is to provide students with opportunities to experience and learn about a broad spectrum of music (from the European fine art tradition and the many types of American music to the music of cultures around the world); to partner with students in developing the verbal and technical skills necessary to communicate through music; to inspire students to participate in musical activities; and to foster the intellectual, creative, and spiritual growth of musicians by instilling in them a commitment to artistic and personal excellence.

Transfer Pattern Outcomes


Upon successful completion of this transfer pattern, students will be able to:

  1. demonstrate a solid core of theoretical knowledge and musicianship skills;
  2. demonstrate a broad knowledge of the canon of Western art music;
  3. perform in their area of applied music voice/instrument at an intermediate level of technical skill and expressiveness;
  4. perform in their area of applied music voice/instrument at an intermediate level of technical and musical skills as a member of an ensemble.
