Field of Study Programs:

  • Communication-Journalism and Speech
  • Music

The Division of Fine Arts includes Art, Drama, Music and Communications. Courses are offered for three types of students:

1.) Those who desire to pursue a professional career in Fine Arts after completing a standard four-year curriculum.
2.) Those who desire courses in Fine Arts to complement their major or minor fields.
3.) Those who desire to enrich their lives through participation in Fine Arts.

It is the purpose of the Division of Fine Arts to function as an educational and cultural force in the college and the community.

The theater department produces at least four productions a year with acting and design opportunities available to students. Focus on the development of portfolio, resume, and audition pieces is a priority of the student experience.

The Angelina College Chorale participates in a major musical theatre production, a Christmas concert, and a Spring concert. Members have the opportunity to audition for the Texas Two-year College All-State Choir.

The AC Singers perform as ambassadors for the college presenting a high-energy variety show on campus as well as in the community and the area schools.

Vocal, piano, and instrumental students perform as soloists as well as in various ensembles in the community and surrounding service area.

As members of the Texas Community College Journalism Association and Texas Intercollegiate Press Association, the staff members of our student publications attend conventions in the fall and the spring and participate with students from other member schools in writing, layout, and photography competitions.

The AC Chamber Winds perform a variety of band repertoire including marches, overtures, and arrangements of classical and contemporary music. They combine with the Lufkin Community Band for a fall and spring concert.

The AC Swinging Roadrunner Jazz Combo and the Angelina College Community Big Band perform small combo and Big Band era arrangements in concerts at Angelina College and in the surrounding community. Students have the opportunity to audition for the TCCBDA All-State Symphonic Band and the All-State Jazz Band.

Each year, a number of art exhibits are held at Angelina College. Major artists are invited to give special exhibitions of their work. Student art shows are presented four times a year. In addition to the courses, workshops, lectures, and demonstrations are held to enrich the experiences in art.

The course sequences listed on the following pages are to be used as a guide. Each student should consult with the Division Director or the assigned advisor on specific graduation requirements. Students planning to transfer to another institution for additional study should become familiar with specific graduation requirements of that institution.
