BA Minor in Art History Program

The Minor in Art History program provides students with a structured introduction to the discipline. Taken as a second major or minor, art history is a perfect supplement to visual art practice, as well as related fields of study in the humanities, such as literature and languages, history, anthropology, and interdisciplinary programs such as Asian Studies, Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice; and First Nations and Indigenous Studies. In combination with other degrees in the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Sciences, an art history major or minor offers exciting ways of exploring the intersections of art with markets, cultural policy, material science (conservation), critical and historical studies in science and technology, among others.

To complete a minor in art history students must include, in the 120 credits required for a Bachelor of Arts degree, at least 30 credits and no more than 42 credits of Art History (ARTH) courses, including any courses specified as required for a minor in the discipline or field of specialization. At least 18 of these credits must be in courses numbered 300 or above.
