This Studio Art degree from New York University provides you with private studios and access to facilities in painting, printmaking, ceramics, photography, digital media, and sculpture.


Our Studio Art degree from New York University is dedicated to assisting artists in developing their work through an approach that is intensely introspective while collectively open to the challenges and issues of the larger world. We ask you to consider, both critically and irreverently, your own practices and assumptions, as well as those of the contemporary art world. 

Designed to be small, the degree provides ample opportunity for individual attention and critique. We are nonrestrictive and encourage you to work with whatever media or formal means best suit your ideas.
