Studio Art Minor
Students pursuing an Art Minor in Studio Art explore and develop concepts, techniques, materials, methods, and critical aesthetic thinking as applied to any of the traditional fine arts disciplines, including Ceramics, Jewelry Design, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, and/or Sculpture.
The minor is designed to allow students to choose a single focused medium (discipline specific focus) or they may explore a varied range of media (media survey focus).
- The discipline specific focus encourages a depth of exploration, a deeper development of skill, processes and techniques, and a deeper understanding of the conceptual, cultural and historical considerations relevant to a particular media.
- The media survey focus allows the student to explore a broader range of traditional fine arts media, while still encouraging some depth within one particular artistic medium.
At least 18 semester credit hours of course work is required of the minor in the Studio Art courses, with at least 6 semester credit hours at the 300 level or higher. Students with a discipline specific focus should meet with an advisor in the discipline after completing 9 hours of the minor to plan course work at the 300 level or higher.
3.0 semester credit hours of Foundation Art course work is required of all Minors. Some 200 level courses have pre-requisite requirements in drawing.
A minimum 2.50 GPA is required for admittance to the minor and is required for all courses in the minor.
