Fine Arts Minors

The fine arts minor represents a unique program created in collaboration with the nearby Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD). The collaboration offers students the opportunity to enhance creative skills, increase knowledge of the arts and fulfill artistic desires by choosing one of the two 18-credit minors: Fine Arts-Graphic Design or Fine Arts-Studio Art. Each minor offers a unique blend of creative conceptualizing, execution, theory and technology. MIAD is fully accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
