About the Art Minor

This art minor offers you the chance to explore different mediums from photography and graphic design to painting and 3D art. The courses are designed for beginners with an interest in art and combines hands-on projects and art history. The program is flexible to meet the interests of students and offers an independent study option for studio work.

This does not replace official academic requirements in the university catalog. Enrolled students will work with their faculty advisor to ensure they meet all the requirements of their major.

I chose my art minor because I have a passion for art and wanted to continue to learn more about art while pursuing my intended career. I am hoping to gain skills through my minor that I would not have had before, while still focusing on my major.
