The studio art major is designed both for the student artist and students with an interest in art. The program focuses on students' creative inquiry and provides a platform to develop skills of visual expression and critical thinking, as well as the satisfaction of making art
Our vibrant faculty is comprised of artists, designers, collectors, scholars, and activists, and our students benefit greatly by collaborating with experts who are actively engaged in the art world. Students learn the techniques and tools to create and analyze artwork inside and outside the studio. Our proximity to the museums and galleries of New York City is a major asset, with class trips and internships available.
A perk of the studio art program is the opportunity to exhibit in the studio and exhibition spaces on campus including the Lukacs Gallery, where art majors and minors are able to have solo and class exhibitions.
A studio art major provides a solid basis for careers requiring creative thinking, problem solving, and visual communication -- such as marketing, education, therapy, and public relations -- as well as for graduate school and all art-related fields.
