Visual Arts, Art History & Museum Studies Minor

This minor is open to students from any concentration in the Department of Visual Arts, as well students majoring in other disciplines who are interested in gaining a deeper understanding about the context in which artwork is produced. This context comprises the complex network of artistic intentions, historical circumstances, economic opportunities, and socio-political agendas that shape artists’ production and viewers’ reception of art objects. Students interested in pursuing this minor should contact a faculty member in the Art history area for further details and advisement.


Because special circumstances might exist that could make any of the listed courses ineligible for the minor, and, conversely, other courses may be offered from time to time that would be eligible, all prospective minors should select an art history advisor and meet with him or her regularly.
