The Visual Arts Program Since its inception in 1995, the Studio Arts program provides studio and lecture courses, and out-of-classroom experiences so that students may develop academic and technical skills needed to research, create, and critically analyze art in its many culturally diverse forms. Further, it provides opportunities for students to develop the skills needed to make a contribution in the arts and to be competitive in a global community. The mission of the Visual Arts program is to provide students with a well-organized curriculum and a safe creative environment where they are stimulated to ask questions, enabled to solve problems, and encouraged to take risks in the process of creating artworks and acquiring knowledge about the art world. Discovery is encouraged through experimentation and problem solving. Students are given opportunities to develop the skills, structure, and encouragement to prepare them for advanced studies in the liberal arts and/or careers in the vast arena of the visual arts.

Studio Arts Major Studio Arts majors will be given experiences in a broad spectrum of academic disciplines offered at the University. These experiences will enable majors to be prepared for career opportunities in the arts while remaining flexible in an ever-changing world. Within the discipline, students will be introduced to both two-dimensional and threedimensional art concepts, materials, and techniques. They will develop basic competencies in the studio areas of 2-D and 3-D design basics, drawing, painting, printmaking, computer based graphic arts, and ceramics. These competencies will be achieved through studio exercises, class lectures with multi-media presentations, assigned readings, and independent research. Through advanced studio work and individualized research, Studio Arts majors will become proficient in a specific studio area. They will also develop an awareness of historical precedents, cultural models, and contemporary practices within the context of their area of studio concentration. Majors will be introduced to several art history traditions through both studio experiences and lecture courses, including general historical surveys of world art, and specialized courses in African and African American art. During the senior year, Studio Arts majors are required to make a formal public presentation-exhibition of their creative work together with an accompanying thesis statement. They must complete a minimum of forty-two (42) credits within the studio and lecture course offerings which constitutes 35% of the 120 credits required for graduation from the University.

The Music Program The mission of the Music program is to: (1) prepare students for careers and further study in music; (2) provide training and experience in music for all students; (3) enrich the general cultural life of the University community through concerts, recitals, and seminars; and (4) broaden and expand knowledge and understanding of music through research and lectures. Entrance Requirements Entering music major students are encouraged to begin the music major curriculum during their first semester at Lincoln University. In order to determine the entering music student’s performance proficiency and musical background, an audition and a battery of music tests will be held during the first week of classes. Students who do not earn a satisfactory score on the Music Placement Examination are required to enroll in MUS-100 Music Fundamentals before enrolling in MUS-101 and MUS-105. Prospective music majors whose applied music performance emphasis is instrumental must also audition in piano and voice for entrance into the Department since both areas are required of all majors. Appointments for auditions and other music tests may be made through the Department of Visual and Performing, room 122, Ware Center. Auditioning students must bring their own music scores. A student with significant deficiencies who is accepted by the Department on probation, must plan: (1) to make up such work in the summer and/or (2) to continue study beyond the normal four-year period. Before the end of the Sophomore year, approval must be secured from the music faculty in order to continue in the major. Music Education majors should apply for admission to the Teacher Education Program by the end of the Sophomore year.
