Undergraduate Minor in Art History
The Art History minor has proven to be a desirable adjunct for students majoring in the biological sciences, social sciences, cultural studies, languages, and for those majoring in the allied areas of Art Studio, Design, or Landscape Architecture. Art History is both visually-oriented and analytical, and because it is a writing discipline, the minor has also provided an interesting and useful source of core GE credits (AH, VL, WC, ACGH, WE).
* The minor consists of 20 units, or five upper-division courses. One of these courses (4 units) can be a lower-division course. Click on the link to view the “Art History Minor Checklist” on the right side of this page.
* There are no hidden course requirements. Upper-division Art History courses have no prerequisites.
* Undergraduate Seminar courses are recommended as electives, AHI 190A-H.
* If architecture is an interest, you can easily create a minor entirely of architecture-related courses. Consult the architectural emphasis in the course catalog for a list.
* UC Davis summer session upper division courses all count toward the minor. In summer session we offer some of our most interesting courses, not available during the regular academic year. They are taught by dedicated, experienced faculty who are experts in their fields.
* Study abroad courses in Art History can be applied toward the Art History minor after they are reviewed by the undergraduate and faculty advisors, who determine the distribution area most suited to the course.
