Graduate and undergraduate courses focus on both theory and practice through a range of approaches and the faculty are some of the most highly respected figures in the contemporary art world. We offer a BFA Program in Studio Art, an MFA Program in Studio Art, and MA Programs in Art Education, Visual Arts Administration, Art Therapy, Visual Culture: Theory and Costume Studies, Art in Media, and Art and Public Policy, a Doctoral Program in Visual Culture and Art Education.

The department is expanding its Global Arts Studio curriculum in Africa, China, and Europe in collaboration with Global Education. Cross-School initiatives at NYU include collaborations with Steinhardt’s Culture and Communication Department, Stern School of Business, and Tisch School of the Arts. We also offer courses in partnership with major cultural institutions in the city, including the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the International Center for Photography, and the Urban Glass Workshop in Brooklyn.

Community based initiatives in studio art, art education, and art therapy allow students and faculty to connect with diverse collaborators in urban New York and across the globe. Students also engage with the city through an extended network for internships and field placements with outstanding artists, museums, galleries, art publishers, art-related organizations, art teachers, and art therapists.
