Design Minor

Choosing a minor in design is a great way to diversify your studies and to incorporate design processes, design skills, and design thinking into your academic program of study.

An art minor is available only to non-art majors. The minor in design provides students an overview of the basic visual communication skills and the concerns of communication design professions. Learn more about the graphic design or advertising design programs at the department of art & design.

Students should keep in mind that a minor is not intended to overload students’ schedules. Rather, advisors should help students integrate students’ minor/elective courses within the overall plan for graduation.

A minimum of 18 credit hours is required for completion of the program. For the minor in design, the following courses are required:
ART 1651: Visual Literacy
ART 1101: Visual Foundations 1
ART 1111: Visual Foundations 2
DSGN 1201: Introductory Visual Communication Design
DSGN 1301: Typography
DSGN 2601: Design Research Methods
