About the program

The fine art minor at Thiel College is a focused course of study with course requirements appropriate to the minor level of study. The fine art minor establishes an appropriately broad yet flexible foundation which best suits the needs of students who are pursuing art in conjunction with another major or simply as a secondary interest.

The Senior Seminar serves as a capstone course for all art majors and minors.

A senior exhibition of art work is a graduation requirement for all fine art minors.
