Academic Catalog

2022-2023 Academic Catalog

The Academic Catalog at Mediterranean Music College is the official document in which academic requirements for all of our programs are specified. Each student has the responsibility to read and understand this document. This publication exists only as an online document, but a PDF version will be available for download. These requirements will apply to students admitted and beginning their studies at Mediterranean Music College during the 2022-23 academic year; the requirements will apply throughout their enrollment at MMC until they graduate. Should the requirements for a specific degree change throughout the time a student is enrolled at MMC, the student will have the option to either continue the degree path in which they started their studies (i.e., the requirements in effect at the time of the change), or to comply with the new academic requirements stated.

If a student were to change their major of choice, they will have to comply with the requirements of the new major, effective the semester they start working towards their degree in the new program.

Mediterranean Music College reserves the right to make changes to this document as it deems necessary. It is recommended that students continually review this page and/or PDF document in order to determine whether any important changes may have come up.

For any questions, please email Academic Affairs at: [email protected]

Language Requirement

All classes will be taught in English, so TOEFL/IELTS or any other official English Exam Scores are required for students from a non-English speaking background. This requirement is waived if the student has completed at least two (2) years at an institution where English is the primary language of instruction.
