Studio Art Minor

The art minor is designed for students who would like to have a program for their own personal growth or enjoyment, or for an adjunct to other major interests such as business, publicity, broadcasting, advertising, philosophy, literature, or areas of the sciences, engineering and other courses of study where creativity, problem solving, and relationships between materials, skills, and content are of major concern.
