Art Major with an emphasis in
With this emphasis students have the opportunity to work in the Lawton Gallery and the 407 Gallery (a student run gallery) under the direction of the Curator of Art. In addition to the core gallery/museum practices courses, students are also required to complete a selection of lower and upper level courses in two-dimensional and three-dimensional studios and five art history courses. Internships in regional art organizations and museums are encouraged in this emphasis.
Students contemplating careers as visual artists will also benefit from taking the introductory course ART 395: Exhibition Development and Design. This course introduces the mechanics of exhibition installation and design, and offers vital experience for exhibiting work in galleries and museums.
Gallery/Museum Practices core courses include:
ART 395: Exhibition Development and Design (fall only)
ART 396: Gallery/Museum Practices, Principles and Policy (spring only)
ART 495: Advanced Gallery/Museum Practices (fall & spring)
Art 497: Internship in Gallery/Museum Practices (1-12 credits)
Contact the Curator of Art, Dr. Stephen Perkins email@example.com, with questions specific to the Gallery/Museum Practices core courses.

Students Declare themselves Art Majors or Minors with a signed form from the Art Advisor as soon as possible, preferably no later than their sophomore year. Many of the lower-level art courses have a priority registration designation to reserve seats for the declared art major/minor.

Art is a disciplinary major. All art majors need an interdisciplinary minor. Art majors often select a minor in Design Arts or Arts Management, although there are several other choices. Art students often have a second major in Design Arts or Arts Management because a number of classes count for both majors.
