The program in art, design, and art history offers two different degrees, a bachelor of fine arts (B.F.A.) in visual arts (often referred to as a professional degree) and a bachelor of arts (B.A.) in art (commonly referred to as a liberal arts degree). Within the B.F.A. degree, a student may define an area of specialization in graphic design, and within the B.A. degree, students may specialize in fine art or art history. The B.A. degree is evenly balanced between general education courses and the area of specialization, while the B.F.A. is more heavily weighted toward the area of specialization. 

Art, design, and art history's overarching teaching mission is to incorporate skills that will translate into real-world experiences upon graduation and to be provided with the opportunity to become sophisticated and productive artists/designers, professionals, and scholars. To that end, we have developed an internship program that has placed our students as interns with artists, and in graphic design firms, art galleries, and museums in New Jersey and New York.

Students accepted to the university may declare themselves a B.A. major after their first year, while a student interested in the B.F.A. degree must apply to one of the two yearly portfolio reviews usually scheduled in November and March.

Please visit the departmental website for the most up-to-date information about major and minor requirements and current courses.
