The Fine Arts Department offers Associate in Fine Arts degrees (AFA degrees) for those planning to pursue major study in the arts at the four-year level.   For more details about the Associate in Fine Arts in Music degree click on the AFA Degree Programs link on the menu to the right or see Associate in Fine Arts, Music.

Music courses may also be taken to fulfill general course requirements or for the pleasure of learning more about different styles of music, how to play a new instrument, how to improve on an existing instrument, or to have performance opportunities in one of CFCC many ensembles.  Through these courses students will learn problem-solving skills, cooperation techniques and can find outlets for individual and group expression through musical performances.
