The School of Art offers two unique and immersive minor degrees. Each designed to support and enhance the BA and BFA programs in both Studio and Art History through practice-based interdisciplinary research across theater, dance, music and art. Both minors provide prospects for professional field experience within the arts and public sphere.


The Minor in Arts Administration is an 18-hour program designed to complement study in a wide range of arts fields, including music, theatre, dance, visual arts, creative writing, communications, media studies, and business. A Minor in Arts Administration is a great addition to a degree in another area of study in the College of Visual and Performing Arts (Art, Music, Dance or Theatre). It will assist you throughout your life in having a successful and well-rounded career in the arts, as a performer, visual artist, technician, entrepreneur or administration. Learn more about Arts Administration Minor.

A minor in Interdisciplinary Art and Social Practice provides students with a unique set of seminar and project-based experiences that explore creative practices that engage the public sphere. Only a few universities across the nation have begun to offer undergraduate degree programs focused on Social Practice. This is great chance to craft a unique education for yourself that combines creativity with your major field of study and interests. Learn More About Interdisciplinary Art and Social Practice Minor.
