Art history, minor in

A minor in art history consists of 18 credits, which must include:

The remaining 6 credits may be any ARTH course at the 200 to 300 level open to non-majors (visit for a list of all ARTH courses), however only one history of film class (270, 271, 370 or 374) can be counted toward the art history minor.

The VCU Bulletin is in transition! As we move from this first iteration of our online Bulletin to a new product and process, what you find on this website is information for the 2014-15 academic year.

While much of the curricular information remains the same, changes that were approved with the effective date of fall 2015 will not be reflected on this website. Prospective students may wish to contact the school or department that administers their program of interest in order to discuss the most current curriculum and concentration options.

Enrolled students who are completing their studies under an effective Bulletin may continue to access the archives at, where past Bulletins are available to reference or download.

Our anticipated launch of the new VCU Bulletin is July 2015. To follow our progress, visit the new Bulletin blog.
