The art history minor, offered by ASU’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, is designed for those students who are interested in a broad introduction to the study of the history of art. In giving a broad chronological exposure to the history of art from diverse cultures, the minor strengthens academic preparation and provides students with many options to select courses based on their individual interests.
Students engage with a rich and diverse curriculum. We explore art's history in economic, social and political contexts, and the relationship of visual art to other disciplines, such as literature, science, anthropology, media and performance studies. Our faculty is nationally and internationally renowned for their scholarly expertise and care in student mentoring. Please note, students may only apply to a minor in combination with an existing degree program. Please speak with your academic advisor to ensure this minor is applicable with your major.
