What You’ll Learn
Find your artistic voice, and learn creative thinking and problem solving skills that can transfer to any career path. We offer concentrations in six areas: Ceramics, Drawing, Graphic Design, Painting, Photography, and Sculpture.
You’ll learn from a dynamic faculty of practicing artists who will teach you the processes, skills, and techniques you need to express yourself as a visual artist and communicator. Students also have the benefit of experiencing art firsthand in our two art galleries— the Tower Fine Arts Gallery, which hosts national and regional exhibitions, and the student-run West Side gallery.
Students pursuing the BA/BS will be immersed in a hands-on, collaborative, and integrated curriculum in art and design, and art history.
Our concentrations allow you the freedom to explore and combine other art mediums, and the flexibility to double major in any degree at the college to complement your art studies.
This 42-credit degree program allows students the flexibility to pursue other academic interests and expand career opportunities through double majors and/or minors.Curriculum & Learning Outcomes
We recommend submitting first-year applications in October or early November. The University decides your admission once you complete your application.
As intents to major, students are expected to work on completing the program foundations requirements and some other major core requirements. Students must not earn a grade lower than a “C” in core courses. Ideally, students should declare their major by the end of their sophomore year.
If you are interested in the BFA program, a separate application is required with a portfolio review.

“The time I spent at Brockport was an important period of artistic and personal growth. With 24 hour studio access and a supportive faculty offering courses ranging from traditional studios to contemporary media, I was encouraged to explore different fields and develop my artistic voice.” Nate Hodge ’13
