Considering a minor in fine art? The Department of Visual and Performing Arts will help you shine like the star that you are.

Minor in Art

You will develop your creative and visual skills, understand the elements and principles of design, experience the history of civilization through the study of art, and gain the tools and incentives for lifelong learning and a robust appreciation of fine art.

You do not have to pursue a major or a minor from the Department of Visual and Performing Arts to enjoy and participate in fine arts at Michigan Tech.
