Purpose: The Associate of Arts Liberal Arts curriculum in Music offers an emphasis in music performance. The Associate of Arts degree curriculum may be used by students who wish to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete the Bachelor of Arts degree in Music or Music Education.

Program or Graduation Requirements: Applied music students: Tuition fees and studio fees are payable to the College. Not all instruments are available for applied study; please contact the department with questions. Applied proficiency requirements must be met in order for students to advance to the 200-level of applied music courses.

A core requirement for majors in the liberal arts at Thomas Nelson and at most four-year schools is competency in a foreign language through the 200 course level. Liberal Arts students who do not have this intermediate level competency are strongly encouraged to enroll in a foreign language in their first semester and to complete all required semesters of foreign language before transfer. Students should map out their semester schedules with this foreign language requirement in mind.
