Students are encouraged to pursue a minor emphasis in any of the major programs within the School of Studio Practice and the School of Interdisciplinary Studies at SFAI.
Open to enrolled BFA and BA students, a minor enables students to organize their elective coursework in exciting new ways and demonstrate the interdisciplinary character of their studies “on paper,” since a successfully completed minor will be recorded on transcripts.
Students minor in a program other than their major. For example, a Photography major could minor in Urban Studies, a Sculpture major could minor in Painting or Design and Technology, and a History and Theory of Contemporary Art major could minor in Printmaking. Students may also explore specific areas of interest within a minor, such as ceramics, artists’ books, issues of sustainability, or experimental cartography, or define their own pathway.
