Undergraduate Studio Art Programs
B.F.A Studio Art
Because visual art is one of the most influential forces in our culture, our BFA program is designed to study forms and ideas together. The interdisciplinary curriculum includes painting, drawing, sculpture and installation, photography, video, digital art, performance, metals, ceramics, design and praxis courses. Art history and theory, the humanities and sciences, and the high energy of downtown New York, come together to create student work that will both reflect and shape the world to come.
Studio Art Minors
The Studio Art Minor allows students from other disciplines to work intensively in studio art. Classes are taught by faculty who are involved in the contemporary art world, and may include field trips, film and image screenings, readings, and discussion, along with assigned projects.
The Global Visual Art Minor brings the hands-on experience of international art to students across the university. Combining Art History and Studio class taken in New York, with studio art courses in Berlin, Ghana, Prague, Shanghai, or Abu Dhabi, this minor provides an in depth understanding of diverse cultures.
As our planet grows more closely connected, global study has become an essential element of the BFA program. Our ArtSite in Berlin allows students the opportunity to work closely with international artists, exploring art across continents and cultures. Additional art courses are offered at NYU study abroad sites in Shanghai, Prague, and Abu Dhabi.
