Associate in Liberal Arts
The Music program is an associate degree in liberal arts. The program provides a solid and comprehensive foundation in music. Students completing the program may either continue their education in a four-year institution with
approximately two years of requirements fulfilled1, or pursue a career as a private music teacher and/or performer.
Three separate areas of study are available: Performance/ Instrumental, Performance/Vocal, and Composition/Music Theory. A certificate option is also available.
Graduating from this program does not automatically qualify the student for the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) endorsement. Students in this program seeking MTA endorsement should
work closely with an OCC counselor to identify classes from the MTA List which apply to the endorsement and to degree requirements.
