The Fine Arts minor is intended for students who have an interest in the visual and performing arts or who may benefit professionally by developing basic proficiency in these areas. Building on the foundation of the two Fine Arts classes required by the core curriculum, the minor offers courses of study in the areas of studio art and music. Dance and photography sequences are under development.
