The Department of Art is a vital, exciting place to create. Studio classes are led by a distinguished faculty of practicing artists who work closely with students to develop their unique and full potential. Comprehensive bachelor's degree programs are designed for serious, talented students who desire a strong liberal arts background and the cultural advantages that only a private university can offer. Renowned visiting artists and art historians conduct lectures, critiques and seminars, and every student has access to numerous art studios, state-of-the-art imaging, student exhibition galleries, and the university’s permanent collection and ongoing new exhibitions in the Steinberg Museum of Art at Hillwood. Students take full advantage of LIU Post’s proximity to New York City’s wealth of creative resources.
Undergraduate programs include the B.S. in Art Therapy, B.F.A. in Art, B.F.A in Photography and an accelerated five-year program for B.A. in Art History & Theory/M.A. in Museum Studies. In conjunction with the College of Education, Information and Technology, the Department of Art offers the B.F.A. in Art Education (Birth to Grade 12). Minors are available in Art History, Art Studio and Photography.
