Studios, galleries and multimedia communications firms are just some of the organizations that are in constant need of talented, creative and professionally trained artists. And with the rising consumer preference for more realistic video games along with movie and television special effects, such as 3D animation, this need will continue to grow. The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts that jobs for artists will increase 12 percent by 2018.
You can prepare for these opportunities through the Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree Program â€" one of the only New York-area fine arts programs to be awarded accreditation by the prestigious National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
Offered by St. Johnâ€™s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the 132-credit degree provides students with the necessary technical and creative tools as well as a rigorous liberal arts education. Students gain the experience and intellectual preparation to carve out their individual artistic identities. They develop a thorough understanding of the various media used in visual arts, while refining their artistic skills through drawing, painting and working with computer graphics software. They also acquire essential critical thinking and analytic abilities, benefiting from the Universityâ€™s well-rounded liberal arts curriculum.Request More Information
