Music Transfer Pathway (AFA)

The Associate of Fine Arts (AFA) degree pathway is designed to prepare students who are very serious about studying music at Cowley College for transfer into a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) program at a 4-year university. Students who want to major in music must show a passionate desire to play, teach, or be involved with music at some professional level.  Students should have significant background from their high school experiences in performance, private lessons, and music theory fundamentals and be extremely aware of the commitment and rigors of participating in a college music program.   

Students are responsible for becoming acquainted with the program and degree requirements of the institution they expect to transfer to and should work with their advisor to select the most appropriate courses.
