Designed for individuals who plan a career in the world of art, the B.F.A. in Arts at the Long Island University (LIU) offers an intensive Art program that combines conservatory training in the traditional studio arts with a liberal arts education. 


Key facts

At the B.F.A. in Arts at the Long Island University (LIU) you will study with professional artists and leading scholars, as well as visiting guest artists from around the world. You will build a solid foundation in drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture and printmaking, while exploring the history and theory of human creativity in courses that range from the arts of the ancient Near East and the Mediterranean to contemporary photography and digital design. Art Foundations are required of all freshmen in the program, where concepts and practices in two- and three-dimensional art forms are examined. 


As a junior you will choose one or more of the studio arts as your concentration; as a senior you will work with a faculty advisor in preparing a B.F.A. exhibition of works in your chosen art media.

A digital technology lab; painting, sculpture and ceramic studios; galleries to showcase student work; and the Steinberg Museum of Art are a few of the many resources at your fingertips. These facilities are complemented by one of the finest undergraduate academic libraries in the region with holdings that include important art collections.
