The Department of Art and Art History offers four-year programs of intensive study in the studio arts leading to the Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree in studio art  (the B.A. degree in Studio Art is no longer accepting new students.) After finishing a studio core curriculum, students majoring in art select a concentration in one of three areas: Studio Art, Graphic Design or Art Education. The Department of Art and Art History also offers a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Art History.

Honors in Art History

Students who have completed the requirements for a B.A. in Art History and who have obtained a minimum GPA of 3.75 in their art and art history courses, based on seven semesters of work, will be awarded Honors in Art.

Special Programs

Summer Workshop Program

The Department of Art and Art History offers an extensive program of summer art workshops for both graduate and undergraduate students. This program is open to visiting students and to students not necessarily majoring in art. Please see the Summer Directory of Classes or contact the Art Department for a current listing of workshops offered.

Adelphi in Florence

Each summer, 20 Adelphi students are offered the opportunity to participate in a three-week session in Florence, Italy. Accredited courses are offered in English or art history. The trip is organized by professors in the Art and English Departments.


As freshmen, art students are assigned to an adviser from among our full-time faculty. Faculty advisers provide registration guidance and consultation throughout the student’s undergraduate years.

Fine Arts Facilities

The Art Department is situated in two campus locations, Blodgett Hall and The Adele and Herbert J. Klapper Center for Fine Arts. The latter holds the painting, printmaking, sculpture, jewelry, and ceramic studios. Our original location on the 3rd floor of Blodgett Hall houses art history, foundation studies, graphic design, digital lab, and photography.

Portfolio Requirements for Admission to the Freshman Class

Students who wish to major in art or art education at Adelphi University should present a portfolio in person at one of our two “Portfolio Review Days” or in a scheduled appointment with the department chair anytime during the fall or spring semester. The portfolio should include 12 to 20 examples of recent work in any medium. Only if a candidate lives a considerable distance from the Garden City campus should the portfolio be mailed to the department. In those cases, digital files are acceptable.

To find out about our portfolio review day events, schedule an appointment with the chair or inquire about the program, contact:
Liz Fargnoli at (516) 877- 4460.

We also schedule several “portfolio review days” on campus in both the fall and spring semesters. These events provide an excellent opportunity to see the studios, meet faculty and obtain a portfolio review and interview in one stop. Check the Web site for scheduled dates.
