The Minor in Art History

Minor Requirements

36 credits, including:

  • at least one 300-level seminar
  • at least 30 elective credits

Minors are required to complete at least six credits in two of three art historical distribution areas: art history of the Western tradition before 1800, art history of the Western tradition after 1800, and non-Western art history.

Art History minors are encouraged to take advantage of off-campus study programs and to explore visual cultural analysis in other departments such as Studio Art, Cinema and Media Studies (CAMS) or Classics. However, no more than one art history course taken outside of the department can be counted toward the minor.

Finally, Senior Art History minors will work closely with Junior Art History majors assisting in the arrangements for the Art History Comps Symposium in Spring Term. This includes preparing response questions to the senior comps presentations.
