A portfolio presentation of basic artistic skills is required to declare a minor in art. To earn a Minor in Arts, students must take the following 18 credit course of study: History of Arts and Ideas I or II, Drawing for the non-major, or Drawing I , Fundamentals of Design and Fundamentals of Color, and two studio electives.
