minors in studio art

Declaration of this minor must be approved by the School of Art academic advisor prior to completion of minor coursework. Students working toward this minor must complete a minimum of 18 semester hours, including 9 hours of junior- and senior-level courses. Hours applied to the minor area of study may not include courses used to fulfill requirements in the student's major. These courses, however, may make the student eligible immediately for upper-division courses throughout the 18 hours of the minor. Neither art education nor graphic design offers a minor. Students working toward a minor in studio art must complete a minimum of 18 hours of coursework in the School of Art.
