Art - Minor

Students pursuing other majors may minor in Art by taking a minimum of 18 hours. There are three emphases within the minor, traditional media, new media and visual culture. A minimum of six hours of 300-400 level courses is required.

Students must have a minimum cumulative GPR of 3.00 and must maintain a “C” average or better in all courses completed as part of the minor in Art. The student’s home college/department may grant, with agreement from the Department of Visualization, transfer credit of no more than six credit hours. Transfer credit will not be accepted for any 300- or 400-level course. Credit for study abroad (CARC) courses may not be applied to the minor in Art if an on-campus course containing similar content is offered.

A grade of 'C' or better is required for all courses used towards the minor. Per University guidelines, the student’s home college/department is responsible for advising students pursuing a minor in Art.
