Minors allow students greater opportunity to add cross-disciplinary knowledge and competencies to their major program of study.


The Museum and Gallery Practices minor is a unique, integrated and cross-departmental minor that allows students to become familiar with a range of professional activities within the museum and gallery fields. Students will acquire a general understanding of various areas of practices and can also tailor their selection of courses to concentrate on more specific areas of interest such as curation, museum education, or exhibition design.

Participating departments: Architecture, Fashion, Film and Video, Fine Arts, History of Art and Design, Humanities and Media Studies, Interior Design, Photography, and Social Science and Critical Studies.
