Fine Arts at Wake Tech

Knowledge of art and music are fundamental components toward a well-rounded, robust general education focused on a good understanding and appreciation of the arts, their importance and impact on society. Wake Tech's Fine Arts Department offers courses toward the completion of an Associate in Arts (AA) or an Associate in Fine Arts (AFA) degree.

Music courses for non-majors

Music at Wake Tech provides students with a number of opportunities to engage in music making and cultivate an appreciation of music. Creative performance options such as Chorus are available as an elective, as well as history-based MUS-110 Music Appreciation and MUS-112 Introduction to Jazz. Study Abroad opportunities in Austria are also available.

Music faculty enthusiastically bring their performing experiences into the classroom from a variety of disciplines, including vocal and choral performance, guitar, piano and instrumental performance.

Art courses for non-majors

Non-art majors are advised to take ART-111 Art Appreciation, ART-114 Art History Survey I or ART-115 Art History Survey II. These courses can satisfy up to six of the nine hours of humanities required for the AA degree program. ART-114 or ART-115 are non-sequential and may be taken in any order.

Non-majors may also enjoy introductory courses in various media, including drawing, design, sculpture, painting, printmaking and computer art. However, AFA-Visual Art students have priority registration for these courses.
