Are you creative? Do you like working with your hands? Add a minor in studio art to increase your creative problem-solving and craft skills.

The studio art minor is an opportunity for students across ASU to pursue their interest in art and expand any career path with critical thinking and creative problem solving skills. Across six art courses, students learn art techniques and concepts. The designated coursework is flexible enough for students to concentrate in a single area of the studio arts or explore several mediums.

Current ASU undergraduate students may pursue a minor and have it recognized on their ASU transcript at graduation. Students interested in pursuing a minor should consult their academic advisor to declare the minor and to ensure that an appropriate set of courses is taken. Minor requirements appear on the degree audit once the minor is added. Certain major and minor combinations may be deemed inappropriate by the college or department of either the major program or the minor. Courses taken for the minor may not count toward both the major and the minor. Students should contact their academic advisor for more information.

Career outlook

A minor can help students enhance the marketable skills they acquire in their major program and help them develop new skills apart from it, though most career areas do require more training than a minor alone can provide. A minor in studio art can help students as they pursue careers in animation, ceramics, painting and drawing, textiles, printmaking, and sculpture, woods, and metals.
