Why Choose the Art History Minor?

The art history minor enables students to study in some depth the evolution of art from prehistory to the twenty-first century. Introductory courses focus on significant stylistic periods such as the Classical, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, or Romantic. Other courses examine major ideas and styles in modern and post-modern art. These classes include study of the role of women in art, African-American contributions to American art, and the special evolution of art in America. Students also are able to study abroad in the summer with master teachers from Ferris in Italy, France, Spain and England.

Admission Requirements

This Art History minor is open to any student admitted to Ferris State and pursuing a baccalaureate degree. The minor is designed to complement any Ferris major program. Students may use only one-third of the credits in a minor that overlap with the student's major. For example: If a minor is 18 credits, 6 credits may be applied to the minor that are also used in the major. Students may apply 6 credit hours of overlap between minors.

Graduation Requirements

An academic minor may only be awarded upon completion of a baccalaureate degree at Ferris State. This minor requires a minimum of 18 credits with a minimum 2.0 grade average in these courses.

Also, 50 percent of the credits for a minor must be taught by Ferris State University.
