Fayetteville State University, the historically Black educational institution in North Carolina, has announced the establishment of two new bachelor’s degree programs. The university will offer a new bachelor’s degree in visual arts and a new bachelor’s degree in music.
The new degree programs replace bachelor’s degree programs in art education and music education. The changes will be in effect for all new incoming students. Returning students will be able to complete their degree programs in art education and music education.
Jon Young, provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at Fayetteville State University, stated that “we are pleased to be able to offer these options for students wishing to pursue a degree in art or music. These academic offerings in visual arts and music will benefit students who wish to work both inside and outside of the classroom or who wish to utilize their degree in other areas of the performing and fine arts.”
