Art Minors

Consider declaring a minor in Art History, Art & Visual Culture Education or Studio Art as a means of deepening your understanding of art and your artistic self. For instance, are you planning to major in Art History or perhaps a different area of study altogether, but you still feel the insatiable urge to create? The minor in Studio Art is available with a concentration in 2D Studies; 3D and Extended Media; and Photography, Video and Imaging.
