Minor in Art History

The minor in Art History requires 18 semester credit hours.  The 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. The minor in Art History will help students increase their competitiveness in a job market where employers are particularly interested in well-rounded job applicants who not only have specific technical skills but also a wider understanding of history and culture. 

All prerequisites must be met for any course chosen to satisfy requirements for the minor in Art History. 

Students who are pursuing the Bachelor of Arts degree major in Art, the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a major in Communication Design, the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a major in Studio Art, or the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a major in Photography within the School of Art and Design, who also choose to complete the minor in Art History, must complete a minimum of 9 unique hours in the minor. It must be noted that a combination of the Bachelor of Arts degree major in Art with a minor in Art History, may result in the need for advanced open electives in order to complete the minimum 120 overall hours and/or the minimum 36 advanced hours that are required for graduation.
