Program Description

The two-year degree program in Music at Western Iowa Tech gives students the flexibility to apply their Associate of Arts degree to pursue a bachelor's degree in music performance, musical theater, music education, or arts administration. Non-majors who enjoy musical performance and wish to continue their musical activity past high school are welcome in WITCC's performance ensembles, musicals, and Applied Music classes.
