Bring your talent for music to Collin College, where our instructors can help you hone your craft as you study in the field of your choice. Like jazz? How about classical? Are you an instrumentalist? Strictly a vocalist? Collin College has a place for you.

The Music field of study (FOS) provides approved courses for music majors who intend to transfer to a college or university and further their musical studies. The curriculum offers the required music theory, ear training, keyboard skills, music literature, private applied study and ensemble participation that all music majors must complete during their freshman and sophomore years. Upon completion of the field of study curriculum, a certificate will be awarded to acknowledge completion and readiness to transition from an associate level to a baccalaureate (BA/BS) level, at any Texas public institution.

The college is also home to several ensembles and musical groups, allowing you to explore your abilities with other like-minded musicians in a comfortable setting. College facilities even provide a venue to share your talent with the world.

A Field of Study is a set of courses that will transfer and apply to a corresponding bachelor’s - level degree at a Texas college or university. Both the Field of Study and the Core Curriculum courses are transferrable for full academic credit to any public college or university in Texas. Students who complete the Field of Study block of courses will earn a certificate in that Field of Study.

Did you know that you can also earn an AA or AS degree in addition to the Field of Study certificate? Contact an academic advisor today to learn more about how to develop an educational plan that is right for you.
