The minor in Art provides students with the fundamentals of the discipline enabling them to shape perception, communicate distinct attitudes, and expand their personal boundaries.

Students will develop skills, sensitivity, and aesthetic judgment. Classes in art history interpret works of art within their context and purpose. An ample number of selectives (9 hours) permit the student to pursue individual interests either within a particular studio area such as drawing/painting, printmaking, digital arts, photography, and sculpture or within a spectrum of either Western or non-Western art history offerings. The art minor is open to all undergraduates who submit a proposal of study (and portfolio of past artwork) to the appropriate art faculty advisor for individual placement.
