Minor in Art History

The minor in Art History is open to any undergraduate at SMU. Art History is a natural complement to many majors, adding a visual arts perspective to the study of anthropology, history, languages, psychology, religion, music, or any of the humanities.  Art History also provides a valuable arts and humanities counterbalance to majors such as Finance or Engineering, enabling students to perfect their writing, observational analysis, and oral communication. Art History minors graduate with a diverse educational portfolio and career-ready skills.
