Studio Art Minor

Enhance your knowledge of a particular area in the field of art with a minor in Art History or Studio Art. As a Studio Art minor, you will be able to take courses focusing on artistic techniques in a variety of media and styles, including drawing, ceramics, silkscreen, painting, photography, video art, lithography, etching, and sculpture. 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.
