Studio Art Minor

The Studio Art Minor is intended for the students who want to add studio art experience to their undergraduate studies and advance their art knowledge and skills. The Studio Art Minor may be especially appropriate for students with substantial interest in studio art, but who intend to pursue careers in other fields and for students intending on pursuing a master’s program in Art therapy.

The Studio Art Minor offers introductory level courses in six specialization areas and subspecialties. Study in these areas gives students a range of breadth in studio practice, analysis, and art history appropriate for multi and interdisciplinary study. Select upper level courses are available which allow students to study in depth in one or more specialization areas.
