The art history minor consists of 6 courses and is intended to give students a broad introduction to a wide range of objects, periods, and styles, while encouraging them to pursue further study within a field of their choice.
The required courses include one 100-level course in the Western survey sequence (AHIS 101 or 102), one course in non-Western art (100-level or above), and four courses at the 200-level or above. Of these four courses, at least one must be a 300-level seminar.
Students with a score of 4 or 5 on the Advanced Placement examination are exempt from the Western survey course (100-level) requirement, but still need to take six courses.
Courses that count toward the major and minor must earn grades of C- or better in these courses. No more than two courses may be counted from Study Abroad courses and are subject to approval by the student’s minor adviser.
For students pursuing a minor in architectural studies, no more than two courses may be shared between the art history and architectural studies minor.
