We offer a major in Art, which introduces students to the languages and techniques of art, both in practice and in history. We also offer a minor in Art History. 

The Art Major requires twelve courses that include work in both studio art and art history.  The requirements are as follows:


• Two of the three 100-level art history survey courses (Art 101, Ancient to Medieval; Art 102, Renaissance to Modern; Art L104 Introduction to East Asian Art)
• Two 200-level studio courses introducing the methods of a specific studio art medium.
• One 300-level, advanced course in art history
• One 300-level, advanced course in studio art
• Two electives, only one of which may be at the 100-level
• Three courses at the 300 or 400-level
• One Capstone course

Students interested in focusing on art history or studio art should use their electives and additional upper-level courses to build depth in their area of interest.

The Minor in Art History is a six-course sequence.  The requirements are as follows:

• Two of the three 100-level art history survey courses (Art 101, Ancient to Medieval; Art 102, Renaissance to Modern; Art L104 Introduction to East Asian Art)
• One elective at any level
• Three courses at the 300 or 400 level
