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


The Department of Art and Design Education offers a dynamic and cross-disciplinary 15- credit minor for students from across the Institute. Students in the minor will be prepared to teach in informal settings that do not require a teaching credential such as community arts organizations, museums, and after-school programs. In addition to the required teaching courses, students will choose from elective courses in the social sciences and history of art that provide key contextual understanding of the link between education, communities, and urban change.
