Minor in Art History

The School of Art and Design offers a Minor in Art History. 18 semester credit hours are required. This minor will offer students, who are interested in art history but do not want to major in it, the opportunity to acquire important visual and critical thinking skills central to the discipline.

We believe that the minor in Art History will help students increase their competitiveness in a job market where employees are particularly interested in well-rounded job applicants who not only have specific technical skills but also a wider understanding of history and culture. A student cannot both major and minor in the School of Art and Design.

Specific Requirements: ARTH 2301 and 2302.  Students select four Upper Division Art History Electives from the 3000 level lecture and 4000 level seminar courses, with the exception of ARTH 4325 (Art History Internship, offered every semester), the 4000 level courses are taught in rotation on a three-year cycle.
