"I can point to my studio art classes at Marywood University as the best experiences of my undergraduate career. The fostering of trust, independence, and camaraderie between the professors and students at Marywood prepared me for further artistic pursuits and a professional degree."

Who Should Minor In Art?
An art minor is an attractive option for students majoring in studio art, design, or art education, since these programs already require up to 12 credits in art, which count toward the minor. An art minor is a natural complement to any studio art training, as well as graphic design, art history, art administration, art education, and art therapy, strengthening the content and articulation of a student's own art.
Business and Communications students
A minor in studio art gives students who anticipate working in marketing and communications valuable first hand experience with the artistic materials and techniques that will be used in their future careers. In today's competitive job market, an art minor provides first hand experience with new materials, fosters appreciation for the creative arts, and enhances communication skills within the art and design community.
An art minor helps students prepare for admission to graduate schools, leading to rewarding careers in the arts. In addition, an art minor draws upon other disciplines to help students develop critical thinking and research skills. It's the perfect complement to a major in history, art history, arts administration, English, philosophy, theater, or any other program.
