The Studio Art Minor provides students the opportunity to develop their creative skills which will complement any major. Creativity and critical thinking skills learned in art classes are applicable to a wide range of careers and the minor allows students to explore, respond to, and communicate with their environment through a visual and material language. All students begin with foundational classes and build on their learning through progressively more advanced courses. Course work includes opportunities to work in a variety of media, including ceramics, drawing, jewelry & metalsmithing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, and a selection of communication design, digital, and integrated media coursework.
A grade of “C-” or better is required in each required course before progressing to subsequent courses. Students should note that programs differ in the minimum grade required.
