Art History Minor

Enhance your knowledge of a particular area in the field of art with a minor in Art History or Studio Art. As an Art History minor, you will be able to take courses focusing on the development of art in a variety of locations, time periods, and cultures, including studies in Italian, Asian, Medieval, and American art. In addition, you will be able to deepen your understanding of art abroad, as art and art history courses are taught on Saint Mary's Rome campus and are offered periodically in Saint Mary's European Summer Study Program.
