Approval of a Minor Change to the Minor in Art Studio

Executive Memorandum 12-038

February 28, 2012

From: Paul J. Zingg, President

Subject: Approval of a Minor Change to the Minor in Art Studio

Upon the recommendation of the Provost, I approve a minor change to the Minor in Art Studio.  The Art Department determined it was lacking an introductory art history survey course covering the period of 1940 to the present.  The department changed its series of ARTH 101 and ARTH 102 to ARTH 110, ARTH 120 and ARTH 130 to incorporate this missing element.  The course requirements for the minor will change to include this additional course.  Students will now have 3 required courses, including ARTH 110, instead of 4.  The student will have a choice between ARTH 120 and ARTH 130 as the fourth course.  This change will be effective Fall 2012.
