Art Minor-School of Art - Carnegie Mellon University

Art Minor

The Art Minor requires 6 courses in the School of Art. Students from other CMU colleges and departments are eligible to pursue a minor in art. Students who declare an Art Minor should follow the registration procedures for non-Art students as outlined below.

Admittance to Art classes for non-Art students is by instructor permission on a space-available basis. Generally, studio courses are smaller and have fewer spaces; art history/theory courses are larger and may have more spaces. Art professors will accommodate as many non-Art students as possible. They do not have priority in enrollment in Art classes over other non-Art students. Students should inform professors that they are attempting to earn the Art Minor. Professors do include as many as space permits. 

Non-Art majors (this includes Art Minors) may take any School of Art course only on a space-available basis since Art Majors (BFA, BHA and BSA) have priority. There are no "general" Art courses and there are no Art courses specifically for non-majors. Students should find specific Art courses they want to take.

An Art minor requires six courses in the School of Art (as listed below).
