Reveal Your Inner Artist

Spend time in the studio practicing the art form you’re most passionate about or learn more about Art History with a minor in Visual Arts.

With small class sizes and individualized attention from expert faculty, the environment in Guilford’s Art Department nurtures every artist, whether you’re an Art major or not. Students are free to pursue a focused exploration of Ceramics, Design, Drawing, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture or Art History with a minor in Visual Arts.

Students obtaining an A.B. in Art are excluded from minoring in a Studio Art. The Visual Arts minor is available to students obtaining a B.F.A. in Art as long as the medium chosen for the minor is different from the studio focus area for the degree. Students obtaining an A.B. or B.F.A. degree in Art may minor in Art History.

Major/minor requirements and course descriptions are available in the online version of the Guilford College Catalog. Use the keyboard shortcuts Control F for PC or Command F for Mac to search the document for your program.
