The minor in Art History provides students in all majors the opportunity to document their studies in this
unique discipline. This minor will help students be more competitive in applying to graduate art and art history programs and in entering professional fields related to the study of art history (for example, museum studies, gallery work, architecture, advertising, art marketing, and other art-related professions).
Students who minor in Art History will be required to complete a total of 20-24 credits, with 9-12 credits in
upper-division courses. Three courses must be lower-division (two required, and one additional) and three
courses must be upper-division (two to three from regular courses, with one optional from additional listings). Students who wish to complete a minor in Art History should consult their advisor and a member of the Art Department.
