Wake Tech debuted its new Associate in Fine Arts (AFA) degree this fall with concentrations for students to choose from: Music and Visual Art. Both provide a comprehensive and highly-personalized education with the core courses necessary to transfer to a four-year institution.

“Wake Tech’s new fine arts degree programs offer students an affordable way to earn the 64 hours required to continue their education in one of North Carolina’s public or private institutions,” says Department Head Dina Law. “The degrees allow students to develop their talents and pursue interests in a program with a rigorous curriculum, highly-qualified faculty, and state-of-the-art facilities.”

Wake Tech’s Fine Arts Department offers a wide range of courses to complement any student’s program of study, along with opportunities for developing strong artistic skills in personal expression and critical thinking. For more information, visit http://finearts.waketech.edu.
