Minor in Art

Students in many fields find an art minor to be an excellent supplement to their academic programs, as well as a component of professional studies in fields such as Education, Business Administration, and Marketing. In the context of our visually oriented and media-driven culture, the art minor may serve individuals fulfilling a personal interest in art; those seeking to add visual skills to career preparation in such interdisciplinary fields such as Journalism, Architectural Studies, Apparel Management, and many more.


The School of Visual Studies minor in Art requires a total of 18 credits, including 15 credits in studio art and 3 credits in Art History. Six credits must be studio art courses numbered 2000 or above. At least 9 of these hours must be taken while in residence at the University of Missouri. Students receiving an Art Minor must earn a grade of C- or better in Art and Art History courses. 

Students interested in minoring should consult with the Art Program Academic Advisor Kay Gregory.
