Art Minors

The purpose of a minoring in Art is to indicate competency in a focused area and to complement a major program or primary interest. The art minor introduces students to the creative process and visual thinking required in Art History, Studio Art or Graphic Design. Students will select core courses to delve deeper into the theory, ethics, and practice of their area of interest.

Students should speak to an art advisor, Jennifer Arnold, to tailor their minor coursework to their major area of interest.
