The professional art field has expanded vastly to include everything that is visually communicated or "designed." Studio art courses present an introduction to the fine arts where students develop a personal approach to art media, gain knowledge of materials and techniques, and strengthen their creative skills. Seton Hall University provides a "hands on" art education that fosters creative thinkers and problem solvers who will make their mark in this field as leaders. Undergraduate students have the option to study abroad for credit at Student Art Centers International or at other university programs. The proximity of Seton Hall's campus to New York City and Philadelphia allows students access to many significant art institutions. Many education students choose fine arts or graphic, interactive and advertising design as their secondary major.
The art programs offered in the Department of Communication and The Arts are designed to develop each student's interests and potential. Course offerings include drawing, painting, printmaking, graphic design and advertising art, digital art and web design. Advisers work closely with students and tailor their studies to meet personal objectives. With small class sizes, students get much individual attention. A five-year, dual-degree B.A./M.A. in Museum Professions and a web design certificate program are also available.
In addition to the general requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences, students must fulfill the Bachelor of Arts requirements for one of the following majors: Fine Arts or Graphic, Interactive and Advertising Design. Education students must also be in consultation with the College of Education and Human Services with regard to fulfilling the requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Art Education.
