Minors in the College of Fine Arts

About the Minors in the College of Fine Arts

The College of Fine Arts offers three transcript-recognized minors to undergraduate students in the 2018-2020 catalog. A minor must be completed in conjunction with an undergraduate degree at the University of Texas at Austin, and at least half of the required coursework in the minor must be completed in residence.

A student may not earn a minor in the same field of study as his or her major, and at least nine of the hours required for the minor must include coursework not used to satisfy the requirements of the student’s major. However, courses in the minor may fulfill other degree requirements such as general education requirements or required elective hours.

While the Art History Minor is open to all students, the application for the Minor in Arts Management and Administration is restricted to students with more than 30 hours and a GPA of 2.5 or above. Additionally, the Minor in Studio Art is restricted to students with a GPA of 3.0 or above. The application for minors can be found here. Please note that after you apply, you must see your academic advisor to officially declare the minor.
