Who Should Minor In Art?

Art students
An art minor is an attractive option for students majoring in studio art, design, or art education, since these programs already require up to 12 credits in art, which count toward the minor. An art minor is a natural complement to any studio art training, as well as graphic design, art history, art administration, art education, and art therapy, strengthening the content and articulation of a student's own art.

Business and Communications students
A minor in studio art gives students who anticipate working in marketing and communications valuable first hand experience with the artistic materials and techniques that will be used in their future careers. In today's competitive job market, an art minor provides first hand experience with new materials, fosters appreciation for the creative arts, and enhances communication skills within the art and design community.

Other students
An art minor helps students prepare for admission to graduate schools, leading to rewarding careers in the arts. In addition, an art minor draws upon other disciplines to help students develop critical thinking and research skills. It's the perfect complement to a major in history, art history, arts administration, English, philosophy, theater, or any other program.

"I would not be where I am today without the education, opportunities (both in and out of the classroom environment) and experience that I received throughout my time at Marywood University. Most importantly, what stands out to me now are the relationships that I formed with former professors who have become lifelong mentors."
