Visual Culture minor

The minor in Visual Culture helps students develop advanced critical skills that will complement their work as artists and designers. 

It emphasizes knowledge of art history, theory, and criticism; skills in writing and research; and the ability to make connections between Visual Culture and other areas. It contributes to the progress of students in their majors, while preparing them to pursue graduate study, write criticism, and work in galleries and other professional settings.
