SVA offers undergraduate programs across the spectrum of the visual arts. The undergraduate program is a four-year, full-time Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program with courses offered throughout the day and evening.

In 1983, the School of Visual Arts introduced its first graduate offering, a Master of Fine Arts program in painting, drawing and sculpture. Since that time, SVA has added more than 18 graduate programs spanning studio arts, criticism and design. 

SVA's location in New York City and its extensive facilities, state-of-the-art equipment and unique program philosophies all offer students exceptional opportunities for advanced study in the arts.
