Overview

You stand at the center of the art universe in New York City, home to world-class art collections and the artistic masters of tomorrow.

You’ll study the great accomplishments of European, Latin American, U.S., and Asian art, and beyond and will learn how artists were inspired by and grappled with the historical, political, and intellectual challenges of their day through images and the built environment.

Art is essential to human experience. That’s why art history plays a central role in Fordham University’s liberal arts curriculum.

Whether you want to curate the medieval art collection at a museum, sign new artists for a Bushwick gallery, bang the auction gavel, or publish art books, Art History at Fordham gives you the tools to sketch out a creative career.

Career

The pre-architecture program teaches you highly sought skills in computer-aided drafting and design (CAD). It’s great training for work in real estate, construction, historic preservation, and interior design.
