How To Apply

The Art minor requires 40 credits. Students must take course work in at least two departmental curricular areas, excluding courses taken to fulfill the core studios requirements.

We encourage you to declare the minor at least three terms before you think you will graduate.

An advisor can help you ensure that you're on track to meet all of the requirements.
