Art, Art History, and Visual Studies
Students with advanced placement (AP) art credit and students with other advanced art education or experience are strongly encouraged to consult with art faculty for placement in art courses, with possible enrollment directly into upper-level courses without need to complete otherwise required prerequisites. Placement directly into courses beyond the 100-level is at the discretion of the instructor teaching the course into which a student wishes to gain entry.

The minor requires successful completion of the following:
|Course Requirements 1|
