2-D Media Studies

(18 hours minimum)

To provide studio access and focus to the university population (with the exception of B.F.A. in Studio Art majors) to creatively solve problems using design concepts, materials, and processes in one or more of the following concentrations: Photography, Printmaking, and Painting.

The minor in two dimensional media studies explores art processes, developing concepts and techniques relevant to the materials, methods, and critically informed aesthetic thinking inherent in making visual art in two dimensions.

Two-dimensional concentrations in the department include photography, printmaking, and painting. The minor encourages breadth of exploration balanced with a requirement for a two course focus in one concentration.

A minimum 2.50 GPA is required for admittance to the minor and is required for all courses in the minor. Students planning to take this minor should consult a faculty advisor in photography, printmaking, or painting.
