Studio Minors

Many students look to diversify their skills and also complement their major.

Many times a minor is the perfect way to do that. Minors range from 18 to 24 credits depending on the particular department. Most studio departments offer a minor to students from other departments. Students should consult the department chair of the department they wish to minor in for specific information or speak with your Academic Advisor and turn in a minor declaration form (41 KB PDF) from the Academic Advising and Registration Office.
