About the Program
All undergraduate students in the Department of Art & Design begin with the same foundation studio curriculum, designed to familiarize them with core concepts and basic skills in preparation for a rigorous studio practice. The emphasis of the Art program of Rutgers University is on the study of drawing, color, and composition as well as time and screen-based contemporary art practices. Students on the BA track then pursue more liberal arts requirements within the wider university rather than declare an area of concentration with upper level studio courses in visual arts.
All Rutgers–New Brunswick undergraduate students who gain approval from either SAS or SEBS are permitted to declare a BA in art as a major upon acceptance by the Department of Art & Design. Students must take 42 credits to complete the art degree requirements.
