Art Minor

Expand your study into the visual arts

Program Description

This 18 hour program of studies offered by the Department of Art is designed to enhance a baccalaureate degree program. Students may complete course work focused on a concentrated subject area. This minor does not constitute a teaching concentration. The minor in art is an enrichment program for students desiring recognition of accomplishments in the visual arts without the commitment required for a major in art.

What can you do with this minor?

Students will be prepared to work professionally in a field that may benefit from expanded study in the visual arts.
