The art history minor at UBC 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 programs in the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Science, an art history major or minor offers you exciting ways of exploring the intersections of art with markets, cultural policy, material science (conservation), and critical and historical studies in science and technology, among others.

Program Requirements

To complete a minor in art history, students must take at least 30 credits and no more than 42 credits in this field of specialization. At least 18 of these credits must be in courses numbered 300 or above.
