Minor in Art

Minors are required to take one of the core courses (Art 101 and Art 102), one additional course at the 100-level or above, two additional courses at the 200-level or above, and at least one advanced course at the 300-level. Art Minors will also contribute approved works of art and a two-page artist statement to a group exhibition in the Easter semester of their senior year.

Students with Advanced Placement art credit or students with other advanced art education or experience are strongly encouraged to consult with art faculty for placement in art classes, with possible enrollment directly into upper-level courses without need to complete otherwise required prerequisites. Placement directly into courses beyond the 100-level is at the discretion of the professor teaching the course into which a student wishes to gain entry.

Subject to approval by the art faculty, the department accepts up to two courses (eight hours) in art from other institutions. Students may take up to two courses that are cross-listed with and taught by other departments or programs from the College as credit toward the major requirements. The chair decides exceptions to this limit.

NOTE: Up to two courses taken in Art History as part of the requirements for a major or minor degree in Art may be counted toward a major or minor in Art History.
