Policy Statement - 17-04 Art History, Minor in

Minor in Art History (15 units)

This policy statement was recommended by the Academic Senate on March 16, 2017 and approved by the President on March 28, 2017.

Program Description:

The Minor in Art History allows students in majors outside the School of Art to enhance their university education by developing an understanding of the historical significance and aesthetic value of local and global art traditions. The Art History Minor also affords opportunity for students in BA and BFA Studio Art programs to augment their degrees with a more extensive study of specific artistic traditions, time periods, or critical theories.

The Minor in Art History is open to students in all majors except the BA in Art - Option in Art History.

Declaring the Minor

The minor must be successfully declared in order to register for upper division courses. Students must meet with a School of Art Advisor to determine if the minor can be completed within timely graduation units.

Students must also meet minimum GPA requirements (3.0 GPA in the major, 2.0 GPA overall), and have completed lower division courses in the minor with a 3.0 GPA or better.

Alternative admission requirements may apply during times when the School of Art is impacted.

Minor Requirements

For School of Art Majors pursuing a minor offered by the School of Art, some units may be double-counted toward both the major and the minor; however, 9 units of coursework must be unique to the minor, and cannot be double-counted for the major.

Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher in courses required for the minor in order to graduate with the minor.
