Studio Art majors (BA/BFA) and Graphic Arts majors may apply Art History courses required for their program toward an Art History minor. Per University guidelines, these students “must complete a minimum of 6 credits and two courses exclusive to the minor that will not count toward the student’s major or other minors. These credits/courses must be completed at USF and must be upper level courses.” Interested students in these programs should consult with their advisor to clarify expectations before declaring an Art History minor.
