Founded in 1891, TLU resides on 184 scenic acres in Seguin, Texas, near San Antonio and Austin. A diverse student body of approximately 1,400 with classes averaging fewer than 20 students provides a sense of community and an environment where individuality and personal growth are as integral to success as rigorous academics.
In this diverse and ever-changing economy, graduates of art programs have the opportunity to carve out their own space in the creative sector. Texas Lutheran University’s art programs equip students with a variety of tools and experiences, allowing you to create a full and impressive body of work before leaving campus.
Students have the opportunity to study abroad, jury local art shows and attend national art conferences and workshops. Internships regularly become available within the community, or a student may elect to intern in the art department as a shop tech in the ceramics, sculpture and printmaking labs, or in the campus art gallery. Art students may also participate in the annual juried exhibition that is held in the Annetta Kraushaar Gallery in the Schuech Fine Arts Center. In addition, there are opportunities to showcase their works in other venues throughout the community.
The School of Music strives to stimulate growth in the appreciation of music among all members of the student body, and it provides professional training for those interested in a career in music. In addition, the School of Music contributes musically to the total life of the campus.
The School of Music offers programs leading to a bachelor of music with concentration in either music education, performance, or the bachelor of arts degree in music. Students not majoring in music may earn credit in band, choir, chamber orchestra and applied music for satisfying minimum degree requirements. A maximum of four semester hours in band, choir or chamber orchestra may be applied toward graduation. Additional credits earned would be in excess and not creditable toward degree requirements. The TLU School of Music is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music.
TLU’s Department of Dramatic Media is an innovative approach to storytelling via stage or screen by providing equal attention to performance, writing, innovation, and new and emerging media.
A relatively new concept, dramatic media has been defined by the Kennedy Center in its publication The National Standards for Arts Education as a “means of telling stories by way of stage, film, television, radio, or computer discs.” At TLU, that concept has been adapted to create a unique and dynamic program of instruction and production. Intentionally developed as a hybrid of theatre, film and new media training, the program explores storytelling by way of the stage or screen, through the fusion and study of text, performance, design and technology.
With more and more industries and businesses looking to find ways to engage and entertain customers and clients, a dramatic media degree with practical applications for design, engagement, communication and technology is the first step towards a profitable career in theatre, film, media, marketing, event management and design.
