The Art Specialization in Humanities requires 18 semester hours in Art beyond any courses taken to fulfill the GEC and the Humanities Core requirements.  Students are required to take 6 semester hours  in Art History and 12 semester hours in Studio Art courses. The Studio Art courses can be taken on campus or be taken at the prestigious Arts Students League’s Rockland County campus. The university has an agreement that allows students to work on a variety of mediums with professional artists at the Art Students League.  The specialization in Art is designed to enable the student to understand the historical connection art has to religion, literature, and culture.  It also alows students to develop their own skills and appreciate for the development of artistic expression.

In addition to the Art Specialization in Humanities described here, the University offers a minor in Art.  Consult the Art section for program details.
