The Visual Arts Minor is designed for students with a special interest in the visual arts who are not able to make the full commitment to the major (see the Visual Arts Option in the Visual and Performing Arts Major). The minor will provide students with a strong background in visual arts including theory, history, and studio practice. Students will complete a select series of courses that will offer them an overview of historical and current practices in art, intermediate skills in studio art, and basic skills in new technologies.
Note: Courses used to satisfy requirements of the minor may also be used to fulfill General Education requirements. Students may apply up to nine (9) units of transfer credit toward the minor. Students must earn a grade of C (2.0) or better in each course for the minor.
