Minor in Visual Art

The Department of Visual Art welcomes non-majors who wish to learn about the various areas within visual art through the completion of a minor.  Visual Art minors are not required to submit a portfolio for admission.

Because studio courses are sequential, students are advised to declare a minor no later than the first semester of their junior year to allow for adequate time to complete the Visual Art minor.

The Visual Art minor is 18 hours or 6 courses, (12 hours at the JR/SR level).  Students complete a foundations course, such as, ART 101 Drawing I, and an introductory concentration course out of the 8 art areas we offer (Drawing, Painting, Ceramics, Expanded Media, Metalsmithing/Jewelry, Printmaking, Sculpture, or Textiles).  Students are encouraged to concentrate in one art area to attain the proper number of JR/SR hours.
