All students interested in enrolling as an Art & Design minor should contact the Art & Design Department undergraduate advisor to develop a plan of study prior to enrolling in art courses. Students choose between the Studio Minor (2D, 3D, and Digital Tracks), the Design Minor, the Photography Minor, and the Community Arts Minor. Students must take note of prerequisites for 200-level and above coursework in Art & Design.
Students who decide to become Art & Design majors based on their Art & Design minor experience will need to complete the remaining First Year Program credits and the 200-level introductory studio courses prior to continuing with the remaining BA or BFA requirements.
A minor in Art & Design consists of a minimum of 18 art credits. Nine of the final 12 credits must be taken in residence at UWM. Art & Design minor students must maintain an overall GPA of 2.5.
