Studio Art (Minor)

Home / Degree Programs / Studio Art

The studio art minor is designed for students who have an interest in studio arts but are pursuing another major.

The program includes foundation art courses on formal issues in art and upper-division courses that develop the conceptual basis students need while increasing their technical proficiency in one or more studio areas. Coursework in art history, both lower and upper division, helps foster critical understanding of aesthetics and the production of art. The designated coursework is flexible enough for students to concentrate in a single area of the studio arts or explore several mediums.
