20 semester hours
The Art Department at Aurora University offers students a broad based foundation program designed to encourage aesthetic appreciation, sensitivity and skill building in the visual arts through study in the classroom, art studio and computer lab. As art and aesthetic sensitivity contribute to the quality of life for all people, so a minor in art can be beneficial to all students regardless of their academic major or career aspirations. A minor in art can also have practical value when skills and knowledge of graphic communication or art education are used to supplement a student's major. Teacher Education and Communication are two majors that readily benefit from an art minor.
Students may complete a minor in art by choosing 20 semester hours from the Art Program’s course offerings. This selection must include either ART1000 Art Appreciation or one of the art history courses (ART2500 or 2600).
