The minors in Visual Arts or Art History are designed for students who are not visual art majors but want an introduction to the concepts and functions of both the visual arts and or art history offered in a professional training program. Both minors consist of an 18-credit sequence of departmental studio and/or art history courses and provide students an expanded opportunity to advance their artistic ability through hands-on creation, exhibition and research. Those students who are interested in a minor in visual arts or art history are strongly encouraged to come to the art department office for information regarding special requirements associated with the course work in our minors.
