Minor in Art
In an effort to maintain manageable class sizes, the Department of Visualization is temporarily suspending new enrollment into the minor in art. This suspension on new enrollment will be in effect until total enrollment is reduced through graduation. At this time we estimate that the restriction will be lifted following the spring 2022 semester. Future enrollment will include a fixed cap and semi-annual sign-up periods that correspond with the change of major deadlines set by the university.
The art minor allows you to explore your creative side though traditional or new media. In this program, you will develop your skills through practice of the visual arts in your chosen format. The 18-credit-hour minor provides a broad orientation to the visual arts offered by the Department of Visualization to non-visualization majors. Choose an emphasis in traditional media, new media, or visual culture.
