Pursue a minor in any of SFAI's major programs.
Undergraduate students have the opportunity to organize elective coursework in exciting new ways and demonstrate the interdisciplinary character of their studies “on paper,” since a successfully completed minor will be recorded on transcripts.
You may minor in any program other than your major. For example, a Photography major could minor in New Genres, a Sculpture major could minor in Painting or Art and Technology, and a History and Theory of Contemporary Art major could minor in Printmaking. Students may also explore specific areas of interest within a minor, such as ceramics, artists’ books, issues of sustainability, or experimental cartography, or define their own pathway.
Each minor requires seven courses within an area of study. Please refer to each department-specific matrix for more information. Students may transfer two courses (6 units) into a minor.
