Studio Art Minor

Studio Art is a minor that prepares students to become creative thinkers and makers and encourages them to connect their interests in Art to their major area of study. Students learn and create at the intersections of art, the social and natural sciences, and the humanities, to develop unusual combinations of skills and ideas required to be successful in the world.

Students who successfully complete a MINOR in Studio Art will:

  • Produce works that investigate human experiences and integrate knowledge from other disciplines and cultural contexts.

  • Make art that demonstrates proficient use of design principles, problem-solving, and craftsmanship.

  • Consider art and media from an informed perspective by carrying out research.

  • Exhibit familiarity with the works and intentions of major artists/designers and movements of the twentieth century and with contemporary art and critical theory.

The Studio Art Minor requires a minimum of 24 credits. All art courses must be taken on the letter grade basis. Under exceptional circumstances, one additional course taken Credit/No Credit may be presented for the major with permission of the chair of the department. Typically, this exception is made when a student has taken an art course CR/NC before declaring a major in the department. The Minor requires 5 courses in four categories, plus an Experiential Learning Experience OR a Capstone Art-making Experience.
