Note: Complementary Studies
All candidates for the Bachelor of Arts degree in Art must complete 12 units of complementary studies from courses bearing a prefix other than ART, and not cross-listed with ART.

Students may satisfy this requirement in a variety of ways designed to facilitate timely graduation. Under advisement students may complete 12 units of coursework in a single foreign language, an approved study abroad program, partial completion of a second major, minor, or certificate program in a related area of study. Related areas include Museum Studies, Design and Industry, Cinema, Music and Dance, Theatre, and Business. Requirements vary for each of the four Art concentrations (Studio; Art History, Art Education, and Studio/Art History) and students are strongly encouraged to work closely with their major advisor toward completion of this requirement.

Note: Students who complete two majors, or a major and a minor, automatically complete the complementary studies requirement.
