Music and Visual Arts Courses

Music Instruction Courses

Music instruction and performance courses do not count toward the 128 points of credit required for a B.S. degree. Please note that this includes courses taken at Teachers College, Columbia College, and the School of the Arts.

Visual Arts Courses

Students are allowed to take courses in the Visual Arts Department for general credit to be applied toward the B.S. degree. However, no more than one visual arts course, which must be taken at the 3000 level or higher, may count toward the nontechnical elective requirement. This 3000 course is an exception to the rule that no workshop classes can fulfill the nontech elective requirement.
