Art Major, BA (NYC)
The BA in Art offered on the New York City campus provides a general, liberal arts education to students in the fields of both art and design. Classes are offered in Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, Film and Video Production, Printmaking, Photography, Interior Design, Digital Media (Graphic Design, Web Design, Animation, 3D Design, and Illustration), and Art History. The 36-credit degree permits students to develop a solid level of competence in the field, grounded in art historical practice. Both traditional and new media may be studied independently or merged, and taken in combination with lecture courses, internships, and study abroad. The degree is designed to provide curricular flexibility without sacrificing depth. The BA degree is ideal for students who wish to double major with another liberal arts field.
No portfolio is required for admission into the BA in Art program. All students interested in studying any of the practice-based fields offered in the Art Department may enter Pace in the BA program and then apply with a portfolio for acceptance into the more focused BFA degree in Art (concentrations in Film Production, Graphic Design, Digital Art, Photography, Sculpture, 3D Design, Interior Design, Painting, and Drawing).
See Prof. Linda Herritt, Prof. Charlotte Becket, or Prof. Derek Stroup (all 41 Park Row, Rm 1205) for more information or to declare a BA in Art. Email: email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com.
