Frequently Asked Questions
What are the requirements of the Art History minor, and how do I go about declaring a minor?
An Art History minor is a great choice for students whose schedules do not allow them to fulfill the requirements of a major in Art History, but who would like to take a series of Art History courses tailored to their particular interests. The minor requires that students take six courses (18 credits) in Art History, with no more than six credits at the 100-level, and at least three credits at the 300-level or above (Internships do not count toward this upper-level requirement). Students who are not Art majors can take a course in the Art department as one of the six required courses; students who are not Cinema and Photography majors can take History of Photography or Introduction to Photography as one of the six courses. There's a "Declaration of Minor" form available from either the department's administrative assistant or from the H&S Dean's office in the Muller Faculty Center. The form is simple to fill out, and requires the signatures of your current advisor, and of the Art History department chair. Feel free to ask any faculty member in the department about the requirements of the minor.
