About the Art Minor

Recommendations for Art History Students
Undergraduate work in art history is enhanced by knowledge of at least one foreign language and by additional studio art experience. Graduate work normally requires reading knowledge of German, of French, or of other languages appropriate to an area specialization.
Minor in Cinema Studies
In the cinema studies minor, students study the history and aesthetics of movies while also undertaking their own productions. The minor consists of 15 credits. The link below will connect you with the current Academic Catalog and requirements for each concentration.
Minor in Art Education
The Art Education program assists students to become educators as leaders through coursework that addresses the needs of diverse listeners. Students complete their preparation through field and internship placements in a variety of school settings. Students pursuing Art Education will earn a BA in Studio Art or a BFA in Studio Art (preferred) with a minor in Art Education. Then they complete the Professional Year—graduate course work and a year-long internship that leads to a master’s degree and one year of teaching experience. The link below will connect you with the current Academic Catalog and requirements for each concentration.
Minor in Museum and Curatorial Studies
The Museum and Curatorial Studies minor introduces students to a variety of professional practices within museums and other collecting institutions; the professional, legal and ethical concerns underlying such institutions; and to their historical and theoretical frameworks. In addition to coursework, at least 3 credit hours of internship with an appropriate organization is required. This minor is suitable for those interested in careers such as curators, registrars, museum educators, auction house specialists, gallery staff, and careers related to disciplines such as anthropology, art history, plant sciences and public horticulture, public history, and others. The minor consists of 15 credits. The link below will connect you with the current Academic Catalog and requirements for each concentration.
