Visual Arts Minor

The minor in visual arts is designed for students who would like a creative component to supplement a major in a related field, such as communication and media studies, art history, urban studies, or computer and information sciences. A minor in visual arts might also serve as a creative complement to majors that would appear at first glance to be unrelated, like psychology, natural sciences, English, or anthropology.

Six courses must be taken for a minor, consisting of the following:

Students should check with their adviser to see which art history course would be appropriate. The ARHI 1101 INTRODUCTION TO ART HISTORY: EUROPE satisfies the University’s fine arts core and is strongly recommended but other courses may count with adviser permission.

Any course with the VART subject code may fulfill this requirement.
