The Art minor provides students with the opportunity to integrate art with other academic and research pursuits. It is designed for students to pursue studies in both studio art and art history with an integrated, mixed media approach. Students selecting the minor in Art are not necessarily pursuing careers as practicing professional artists and art historians. They are seeking a unique program of study where the visual arts provide opportunities to problem-solve creatively and efficiently. (RequirementsAdmissions)
