It is often desirable for students in areas such as art education and design to pursue a concentrated, but not all-encompassing, study of an art discipline outside of their major field. This widens the students' perspective, increases their professional and job-related opportunities and enhances qualifications for those planning to pursue a graduate degree, as well as satisfies other personal interests. Many students do this now but receive no formal recognition of their work. This minor program in painting meets the needs of these students and recognizes their efforts and achievements.
No entrance portfolio is required for admission to the painting minor program.
