The studio art minor provides a strong foundation in art history and introduces students to a wide variety of art media. Students who minor in studio art have the opportunity to show their work in multiple student exhibitions each semester, including a holiday exhibition and the juried student exhibition in the Fine Arts Center Gallery. Access to Art Department studios is available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week to students minoring in studio art.
