Studio Art (Minor)

Home / Degree programs / Studio Art

If you are a creative thinker and problem solver who likes working with your hands, consider adding a minor in studio art to provide a creative outlet to your major.

The studio art minor is designed for students who have an interest in studio arts but are pursuing another major.

The program includes art courses that address formal and conceptual issues in art. Students develop technical proficiency in one or more studio areas. Coursework in art history, both lower and upper division, helps foster critical understanding of aesthetics and the production of art. 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.
