Invest in Science Excellence at Quincy University

Quincy University is proud to announce plans to renovate a portion of North Campus into a new Center for Science.  The project, slated to being in the Spring of 2014, was made possible by a generous lead gift of $2 million by an anonymous donor.  Giving students exposure to newer technologies and first-hand research experience will provide them with a competitive advantage for internships, graduate and professional schools, and the workforce.  Increased experiential learning for students will directly impact their ability to apply the knowledge they need to be successful, both intellectually and professionally.

Overview

sciencelabPlans include the renovation and upgrade of traditional classrooms and laboratories, and the addition of one psychology and two science Faculty-Student Research Laboratories.

Specialty Science Teaching Laboratories: Contemporary laboratory settings with up-to-date equipment will give students hands-on experience to complement newly acquired knowledge provided through traditional lecture.

Student Study Space: With the number of core programs being taught at North Campus, it is critical to provide flexible student study and gathering space. The planned study space includes workstations, wireless access and proximity to science classrooms and faculty. A food service area will be added to meet the needs of hundreds of students utilizing the campus each week.

Faculty-Student Research Laboratories: The creation of Faculty-Student Research Labs will allow faculty to continue their scientific pursuits while providing unique and valuable research opportunities for students. Students will be able to apply what they have learned in their courses to scientific research through both assisting faculty research and through conducting their own original research.

Student Computer Laboratory: A teaching and student computer lab is planned for North Campus. This lab is critical for student work and contains specialized software specific to science, mathematics, and psychology.

Modern Technology-Equipped Classrooms: Modernization of classroom space will allow all students at North Campus to learn in an environment designed for today’s technologically advanced students. Internet resources can be accessed in class and displayed for classroom viewing, students can record research data in student response systems for instant classroom analysis, and the professor can manipulate the classroom display via a tablet from anywhere in the room. Flexible modular classroom furnishings allow the professor to create multiple learning environments by rearranging the room for both individual and group study.

niemanncenter

Opened in 2013 thanks in large part to a $1 million gift from Rich and Connie Niemann and Niemann Foods Inc., the Connie Niemann Center for Music, 16th and Seminary Road, comprises a performance hall, a multi-purpose reception hall, and a formal atrium. The center occupies the space that formerly served as two adjoining chapels, initially for Our Lady of Angels Seminary and subsequently for the Franciscan Retreat Center.  The remodeled space retains the character of a sacred space, meeting the needs of the area’s active retreat movement while providing an acoustically sophisticated environment for musical performances.  The traditions and the meditative character of the space were in the forefront of planning and renovation, with special attention to the stained glass art of Fr. Thomas More Brown, OFM, founder of the Quincy University art department. Regional consultants in the areas of acoustics and lighting provided direction for installation of infrastructure to promote an ideal performance setting for musicians and an enjoyable concert experience for the audience.

musicmajors

The Music Program at Quincy University offers courses leading to four undergraduate degrees within the music program: the Bachelor of Arts in Music, the Bachelor of Science in Music Education, the Bachelor of Arts in Church Music, and the Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Music Production. The teaching philosophy of the music program is suited to the individual. This approach develops inborn talent to the fullest, while it stresses those qualities needed for success in the field – musicianship, technique, and overall music knowledge. Admission to the University does not constitute entrance into the music program. All students wishing to major in music must audition before members of the music faculty prior to acceptance as a music major.

Bachelor of Science in Music Education
Students who intent to teach instrumental and/or vocal music at the elementary or secondary levels pursue this degree. Students in this program take additional courses in the School of Education and specific courses in Music Education that will qualify them for teaching certificates upon graduation. Music Education students will gain hands-on experience while working with local K-12 students.

Bachelor of Arts in Music
This is a program for students who desire a well-rounded degree in music, or who may aspire to become performing artists. Our classic curriculum has prepared generations of professional musicians and places substantial emphasis on music history, music theory, literature, and performance. Junior and Senior recitals represent the culmination of this degree.

Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Music Production
This degree offers a fresh alternative approach to understanding and addressing the challenges of our rapidly advancing technological world. Experience and expertise are gained in the areas of recording studio production, music performance and composition, film and video production, radio and television production, field recording, and other areas of the music business.

NEW - Bachelor of Arts in Church Music
Students who wish to work in a church setting as a vocalist, keyboard player, or choir director pursue this degree.  The classic music curriculum is offered along with enhanced religious studies and a church music practicum.  The practicum involves working with local church musicians in a variety of musical settings including church choir, organist, pianist, and contemporary praise band.

Music Minor
The music minor consists of 16-17 credit hours plus ensemble participation. Following the required foundation courses, students may choose an area of concentration: music theory, music history, music performance, or music education.

NOTE:  All performance ensembles include a large number of non-music majors. Students are encouraged to participate in these ensembles and are eligible to receive music scholarships. Following an audition, music scholarships are determined by the music faculty. Non-majors who receive music scholarships are expected to participate in ensembles and take applied lessons in the major performance area.
