The curriculum guides students toward coursework that the art faculty considers essential to understanding art making in a material and conceptual sense. Students completing the minor in art will graduate from UF with a more versatile and well-rounded skillset sought by many disciplines, industries, and professions.

The minor is available to all UF undergraduates, except those majoring in art or graphic design. Interested students must meet with the School of Art + Art History undergraduate advisor to apply.

  • Studio art-related majors (art, art education, and design and visual communications) have priority access to studio classes. Art minors must work with the SA+AH advisor to gain access to studio courses on a space-available basis.
  • Independent studies and internships will not fulfill credits for this minor.
  • 15 credits of the 21 total and all 3000/4000-level coursework must be taken at UF.
  • Up to six credits of 2000-level coursework may be transferred in from another institution or accelerated mechanism (e.g., AP, IB) or may be taken from UF non-art major studio courses. All transfer credits are subject to SA+AH approval.
  • Credit taken toward this minor cannot also be applied to any studio certificate program.
