Think Critically While You Get Your Hands Dirty

The fine arts minor encourages creative expression through drawing, painting, pottery, sculpture, and mixed media. Students enjoy ample opportunity to experiment with new media and techniques, as well as exhibit their work in the Borgia Gallery every semester.

Classes on art history stimulate interdisciplinary thinking, and offer the ideal avenue for students to explore a new discipline in relation to their major. Graphic design, social media, marketing, and education majors can especially benefit from technical and theoretical expertise in fine arts.
