Collaborate and create in an environment that will bring out the best of your artistic ability.

Take advantage of a tremendous opportunity to showcase your works in our campus and downtown art galleries as a Fine Art or Graphic Design major at York College. You’ll be taught by caring professors who will be producing their own artwork for faculty exhibitions. Nationally-renowned artists are regulars on campus. You’ll see them in action creating captivating art installations in the York College Galleries.

You’ll also get instruction on design theory, discuss criticism of art, and get a background in history so that when you are creating, you’re doing it with perspective and context. We strongly believe that better prepares you for a career in the arts — we approach art as a profession. By the time you graduate, you’ll have created self-promotional materials, a resume, an artist statement, and a professional body of work. Our selective program requires an application and portfolio submission. Take the first step to pursuing your dreams of a career in art.
