Music


Music courses emphasize the development of knowledge and skills in music appreciation, history, theory and performance. The majority of Music courses satisfy the Humanities or Humanities – Performance graduation distribution requirement. For the student interested in a two-year terminal degree, EvCC offers a forty-five credit general program in music. Students wishing to transfer to a four-year institution should talk with an advisor about an appropriate plan of study. These courses support the Student Core Learning Outcomes with particular emphasis on the following: engage and take responsibility as active learners and think critically.
