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 — 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. John’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 University’s well-rounded
liberal arts curriculum.
Benefiting from St. John’s location in New York City — a global
capital of the arts and media — fourth-year students have access to
invaluable, career-enhancing, for-credit internships at a
cross-section of leading cultural and arts organizations.
