Athens State extending deadline for Art Scholarship Applications

June 12, 2013

Athens, ALA – Faculty members in the Department of Art at Athens State University have extended the deadline for applying for Art Scholarships until August 1. Scholarships are awarded to new entering students with outstanding potential as art majors. The scholarship is a tuition waiver and award amounts vary.

Requirements for scholarship consideration include a 2.75 grade point average minimum; completed application for admissions by deadline date; all official transcripts on file in the Athens State Admissions Office by the deadline date; all admissions requirements met; all program prerequisites met; must enroll at least half-time (6 hours); portfolio review is required.

The Art Program at Athens State is housed at the Alabama Center for the Arts in Decatur and offers a wide range of courses that enable students to become emerging artists with skills in diverse materials and capable of individual views. Art majors will gain a broad intellectual background to prepare a graduate for entry into professional schools, cultural institutions and the business community.

“As our art department is seeing a constant growth here at the Alabama Center for the Arts in Decatur,” states Pamela Keller, Professor of Art, “we want to make sure all students interested in art as a career have the opportunity to benefit from these scholarships.”

Athens State offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Graphic Arts, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Arts and hopes to soon be offering a Bachelors of Art degree in Art Education leading to K - 12 teacher certification. Students can expect to learn technical, design and conceptual skills necessary to succeed in the arts outside a school setting. Expert critiques by teachers and other students insure that the exit portfolio is of the highest caliber.

The Bachelor’s Degree in Art at Athens State certifies completion of major study in the visual arts. The degree implies depth of study in a number of studio, graphic, and art history areas. Athens State art department offers flexible scheduling of day, night, weekend or distance learning courses along with excellent advising and superior, in-depth instruction.
