Minor in Art History (18)


The minor in art history is for all students interested in how we communicate through images and the built environment. Course work focus is on ways that human relationships to images, forms, and structures have changed over time and differ from one geographical and cultural context to another.

Declaration of this minor by students majoring in art (B.A. or B.S.), art and design education (B.S.Ed.), or art studio and design (B.F.A.) is permitted.

All art history courses at the 200-300 level are available for general education credit and may be used to fulfill both general education requirements (including pathways) and the art history minor.
