Music Transfer Degrees - Southwestern Illinois College

Begin your music career at SWIC

We are here to help you

No matter what your career ambitions may be, our inspiring and caring musical faculty are prepared to guide you in taking the next steps toward making it a reality! We offer individualized attention that you just won’t find at bigger schools, all at a reasonable price. We stand ready to help you figure out how to best apply your musical skills, whether that be teaching, performing, or something else entirely. We offer Associate in Fine Arts degrees in both Music Education and Music Performance, as well as an Associate in Arts degree with a music emphasis.

Discover and deepen your musical skills

When you join our department, you become part of the SWIC family, and we will help prepare you to make the transition to a four-year school after your time at our institution is done. Our music faculty are leaders in our respective areas of expertise, and are in frequent demand as soloists and adjudicators. Doing your first two years of study at SWIC will prepare you to transfer to a four-year college or university. To schedule a consultation about your own musical ambitions, please contact us.
