Visual Arts Minor

The minor in visual arts is designed for students who would like a creative component to complement 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 addition 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:

Course Title Credits
VART 1135Visual Thinking3
Any Art History (ARHI) course, or one of the following:
20th Century Art: Modernism and Modernity
Modernism and Its Aftermath
Seminar Modern Art: Critical Perspectives
Any 4 Visual Arts (VART) electives 1

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

Students must earn a grade of C or above in order for a required course to count toward their minor in Visual Arts.


The minor in visual arts is available at Fordham College at Rose Hill, Fordham College at Lincoln Center, and Fordham's School of Professional and Continuing Studies at Rose Hill and Lincoln Center.
