Senate Bill 148 of the 75th Texas Legislature (1997) mandated Field of Study curricula. The Field of Study curricula, along with core curricula, are intended to facilitate transferability of courses among Texas public colleges and universities. All public four-year institutions are required to accept Coordinating Board approved Field of Study courses in fulfillment of lower-division requirements for bachelor’s degrees in majors that correspond to the Field of Study.
Core Curriculum plus Field of Study for Music designed for students seeking a bachelor’s degree with a major in music.
The Field of Study Curriculum is designed to apply to the bachelor’s degree of music but may also be applied to the Bachelor of Arts or other baccalaureate-level music degrees as deemed appropriate by the awarding institution. The Field of Study curriculum is furthermore intended to serve as a guide for community and technical colleges in structuring a transfer curriculum in music. Fields of Study are valid only when no course substitutions are made.
Students should consult an advisor regarding transfer to a specific college or university.
