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.
