Art Minor

Expand your study into the visual arts

Art Minor

Program Description

This 21-hour program of studies in the Art Program is designed to enhance a baccalaureate degree program. Students may complete coursework focused on a concentrated subject area. The minor in art history 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.

Be part of something great

At ESU, students take an active role in developing the cultural experience of Emporia. You’ll get opportunities to display your work, both within your department and to the wider Emporia State and Emporia communities. Our campus galleries, the Norman R. Eppink and the Gilson Memorial Gallery hold student and faculty exhibits throughout the semester that are open to the public. In the Emporia community, the First Friday Art Walk, started by alum Kaila Mock, often features student work.
