BA Art majors may not minor in Graphic Design.

Prerequisites: ARTS 1313, ARTS 1314, and ARTS 1315, W.A.S.H. (Workshop in Art Studio and History), are listed as prerequisites for the courses in the minor; however, the W.A.S.H. prerequisites will be waived for minors in Graphic Design.  Minors in Graphic Design will have these prerequisites waived upon meeting with a departmental advisor.  In addition, portfolio reviews that are required for majors are not required for minors.  A Graphic Design minor may not, however, declare a major in Graphic Design without approval of the chair and completion of the BFA prerequisites and portfolio reviews.
