professor and student

The minor in Studio Art offers students the opportunity to pursue a course of study in ceramics, design, drawing, mixed media, painting, or photography. There are features of the minor program that resemble, in an abbreviated way, aspects of our majors studio program that we have found to be successful. The required Senior Minor Project class, for example, will function analogously to our major’s Senior Project. This curriculum of six courses is designed to encourage an in-depth investigation of one medium, rather than a generalized sampling of many. The course structure aims at having the individual student develop the artistic techniques and conceptual visual sensibility necessary for working as an artist today. It should be noted students will not be permitted to begin the Studio Minor after their junior year. Students who are interested in declaring a minor can contact the minor advisor.
