For students interested in design thinking, creative problem solving, working collaboratively, and gaining skills with tools and techniques relevant to a wide range of material processes. A Minor in Art provides students from other majors the opportunity to develop their creativity while learning skills in Fine Art and Design that can be applied to many fields of study and careers. Art Minors have access to the same talented faculty, up-to-date studios and equipment as our majors. The department appreciates diverse experiences and perspectives that Art Minors bring to our studio courses. Having students from other majors and departments is an advantage of being part of a larger research university, the Department of Art and Design welcomes those with a curiosity and interest to take courses with us.
