The Curriculum

A member of the faculty is assigned as an advisor to each Visual Arts major and minor. In consultation with that advisor, a student establishes goals and works out a curriculum—including courses taken outside the department—to meet those goals. The following table is an illustration of the requirements to graduate from Fordham with a major in Visual Arts. Each student’s options, choices and progress will be different. A single table cannot show all the possible options. Students should consult the College Bulletin for more detailed information.
