THE COLLEGE  

Fordham University is one of New York City's three major private universities. Fordham College at Lincoln Center is a liberal arts college with small class sizes and a committed faculty. Fordham's Jesuit tradition emphasizes excellence in teaching and is mindful of the care and individual development of each and every student. Lincoln Center's compact modern campus is a lively place, with student theater productions, gallery exhibitions, public lectures, and a vigorous student newspaper.

Student residences, theaters, galleries, classrooms, dining facilities, and professional graduate schools are grouped around a privately secured and beautifully landscaped plaza. All students at Fordham take courses in a wide range of disciplines. The faculty believes that this educational diversity is critical to the training of an artist and that creativity and visual understanding are integral parts of a broadly searching mind. A Visual Arts major and Introductory Visual Arts courses are also offered at Fordham College at Rose Hill, a traditional campus in the Northern Bronx.

All studios both at Lincoln Center and at Rose Hill are available to students when classes are not in session, including weekends, evenings, and summer. The department has two galleries located at the Lincoln Center Campus. The Lipani gallery, located within the Visual Arts complex, features student work and the work of invited artists related to the curriculum. The Ildiko Butler Gallery is a more public exhibition space, features exhibitions of wide interest and museum quality and senior thesis exhibitions.
