Studio Art: Major Information

Total credits to complete major: 45

 

 

 

On November 18, 2010, it was announced that the Studio Art program is being de-activated, effective immediately.

 

Due to this action, students applying for admission to SUNY Geneseo will no longer be able to make an application to major in Studio Art. We regret any inconvenience that this may have caused current applicants. If you are an applicant to Geneseo, and have any questions about this issue and your application to attend SUNY Geneseo, please contact the Office of Admissions, at 585-245-5571 or at admissions@geneseo.edu.

 

Students who are currently enrolled at SUNY Geneseo as Studio Art majors or minors will be afforded the opportunity to finish the program and earn their degree during the next three years. If you are a current Geneseo student, and have any questions regarding this issue, please contact Dr. Savi Iyer, Associate Dean of the College at 585-245-5541 or at iyer@geneseo.edu.
