Overview

Career

Whatever you’re interested in, our faculty will work with you closely as you develop your technical skills and define your artistic voice. At Fordham, our perspective is big—all of New York City is your campus. Museum and gallery tours, studio visits, and visiting artist lectures are an integral part of the curriculum. But our class sizes are small—you’ll forge close relationships with professors and fellow students.

They believe educational diversity is critical to the training of an artist—and that creativity and visual understanding are integral parts of a broadly searching mind.

That’s why you’ll learn more than visual arts here. You’ll also study philosophy, theology, history, literature, mathematics, languages, science, and the performing arts through Fordham’s common core curriculum, the centerpiece of our liberal arts education.
