Academic Standards and Requirements

The Art Department at Molloy College is home to two academic programs:

  • B.F.A. in Studio Art with a concentration in digital art, painting, drawing, photography, ceramics, sculpture or art history
  • B.S. in Visual Art Education

The Art Department welcomes both students who wish to pursue their majors and minors in the visual arts and students majoring in other disciplines who wish to engage in the study of art history or a structured studio experience as part of their education at Molloy College.

The faculty are committed to bringing together the pursuit of serious scholarship and studio practice and providing a caring and rigorous education in the visual arts for our students. They strive to foster a sense of intellectual and creative exchange among the two disciplines.

The course offerings reflect a diversity of faculty expertise, attention to student needs and the spirit of exploration with new concepts and technologies in art. Molloy College's proximity to New York City provides students with an opportunity to see current art exhibitions in museums and galleries and be actively engaged in the "Art Capital of the World."

Students benefit from changing contemporary and historical exhibitions and frequent lectures by visiting artists and art historians to the Molloy College Art Gallery, located on campus in Kellenberg Hall. Each year senior art majors present an exhibition of their work in the gallery and the student art gallery in the Wilbur Arts Center presents several student exhibitions throughout the year.
