Art History Minor

Department of Visual and Performing Arts


The minor in art history is designed for students interested in studying the history of visual art as an academic discipline. The required six courses have been selected to prepare students in the fundamentals of this discipline and to cover a range of historical periods—spanning prehistoric to contemporary—as well as a variety of media. One studio art class is included to enhance the students’ appreciation of the creative process and to strengthen their ability to write accurately about art.
