FAQ

  1. Why should I major in art?

    First, because you are passionate about art. Second, because we are recognized for traditional fine arts, cutting-edge digital design and innovative programs. Here at Lycoming, we strive to help our art majors to succeed in both their college classes and the world. If you love art, join the Lycoming art community and meet our great students and professors.

  2. Do I need a portfolio to get in?

    No. We do not require you to present a portfolio for acceptance to the college or art department. We encourage you to contact the Office of Admission, at admissions@lycoming.edu, to schedule a portfolio review or to attend the annual Arts@Lycoming Open House if you are interested in competing for an art scholarship. We offer merit scholarships for talented incoming first-year and transfer students, renewable in subsequent years.

  3. What kind of computer should I buy?

    We have a well-equipped digital graphics lab. Graphic design, digital imaging, archival digital printing, Web design, animation and interactive media are taught in the graphics lab using state-of-the-art hardware and software. You are more than welcome to bring your own computer, but it is not necessary for you to have a particular computer or software programs to succeed as an art major. If you are buying a new computer, most artists and designers use Macs, but software is available for both Macs and PCs.

    The professors in the art department are dedicated teachers and practicing artists.
