Programs and Objectives

Study in New York City offers an unparalleled opportunity to absorb not only the range and excitement of the current art scene, but also the riches of the past, through cultural resources of exceptional quality. The programs of the Art Department provide both the general student and the pre-professional with a solid foundation in studio art and art history, as well as advanced work in several specialized fields. Formal course work is reinforced with visits to museums, galleries, and artists’ studios; guest lectures and critiques; and exhibitions in the Art Department Gallery.
