Welcome

The Art Department of Stony Brook University offers innovative and dynamic programs in Studio Art and Art History and Criticism. We believe that art must be taught with a critical consciousness of the broad intellectual and social issues of our time. Both graduate and undergraduate curricula benefit from interrelations between the programs.

At the undergraduate level, we offer the B.A. in Studio Art, the B.A. in Art History, the Art History Minor, the Studio Art Minor, and the Digital Arts Minor. At the graduate level, we offer a three-year M.F.A. in Studio Art as well as M.A. in Art History and Criticism, and a PhD in Art History and Criticism.
