Minor in Art
A splash of color to any major.
The minor in art at William Woods University can add a great deal of creativity to virtually any career.
It’s designed to provide you with an open, attractive environment in which to explore personal expression and develop strong technical and artistic skills. Our studio-based programs offer a dynamic opportunity to work closely with active art professionals and to exhibit your work.
Start with basic design and drawing courses and build on that foundation with 12 electives that interest you most – whether that looks like painting, sculpture, weaving, ceramics, photography, or perhaps a combination of all of the above.
Our Mildred M. Cox Gallery is a museum-quality space that features regular exhibitions staged by professional artists whom you will meet and learn from in our Mentor/Mentee program or Senior Practicum course. And theatre productions on campus engage students at all levels: performing, directing, costuming, set design, lighting, marketing and production. A variety of clubs and organizations support student arts and give you the opportunity to learn and explore beyond the classroom.
The Minor in Art at William Woods University includes 6 core course credits and 12 required elective credits.
