Minor in Fine Arts

About the Minor

The Fine Arts minor enables students to develop skills and concepts in the studio arts. Students in studio courses learn to combine skills in using tools and materials, visual theoretical concepts, and new technologies, all of which are necessary for design professionals.

To be eligible for the minor in Fine Arts, a student must have completed a minimum of 30.0 undergraduate credits, have a declared major, and have a minimum GPA of 2.7. The academic credit requirements for the minor must be completed at or before the time of graduation.

Basic design prerequisite courses are required for many programs in Westphal College and some of these may already have been taken for a student's major; however, only 9.0 credits of major-related coursework can be applied to the credits required for the minor in Fine Arts. Students with design credits from other schools or departments may be allowed to apply them to their prerequisite requirements only upon review by the Fine Arts minor faculty advisor.
