Adelphi University’s Department of Art and Art History offers future artists and arts professionals a rigorous training in the visual arts. Courses are designed to offer the next generation of visual thinkers the practical skills and the theoretical framework to reimagine the field and their place within it.
Our program includes four primary areas of study: Art and Design Education, Art History, Graphic Design and Studio Art.
