Fine Art, Minor

Offered in: Chicago

The fine art minor provides students with an opportunity to investigate, interrogate and create art in a socially-conscious context.  A minor in fine art may be coupled with any major as art courses challenge students to be creative and critical thinkers as well as innovators and problem solvers.  Students minoring in fine art enter fields as diverse as education, art therapy, non-profit management, marketing, media, technology and business.

As part of the requirements of the minor, degree seeking students in a good standing may elect to take a maximum of 1 course at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). Roosevelt University students must register and receive credit for SAIC courses at Roosevelt. Registration is by consent only and requires the approval of both the SAIC and Roosevelt University Art program advisors.
