painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, and digital art. Opportunities to supplement the
regular academic program of the department include study abroad in Wake Forest residential study
centers, changing art exhibitions in the gallery of the Scales Fine Arts Center, a visiting artists
program, and internships in local museums and arts organizations. The art department requires a
minimum GPA of 2.0 in the major for graduation.
The department offers two majors, art history and studio art, each requiring a minimum of
30 hours. Any student interested in majoring or minoring in art should contact the art department.
Students may major in one field and minor in the other by earning a minimum of 39 hours in art, of
which at least 24 hours must be in the major field and at least 12 hours in the minor field.
For the art history major, 24 hours are to be in art history and 6 hours in studio art. The required
art history courses include ART 103, one course in Ancient, Classical or Medieval art; one course in
Renaissance, Baroque, or 18th-century art; one course in modern painting, architecture, photogra-
phy, or film; ART 394; one art history seminar; two studio art courses; and electives. Art history ma-
jors are encouraged to take ART 103 and a course in non-western art. An art history minor requires
12 hours in art history and 3 hours in studio art.
For the studio art major, 24 hours are to be in studio art and 6 hours in art history. The required
studio art courses include one introductory course in: ART 111 or drawing; painting or printmaking;
photography or digital art and sculpture. For concentration the studio major requires a three course
sequence and a two course sequence, each within a different area of study. The remainder of the
courses for the major may be fulfilled by courses in any studio area. Studio courses at the 200 level
may be repeated once. Studio art majors who are serious about pursuing a career in art are encour-
aged to take as many art courses as possible in consultation with their advisor. A minor in studio art
requires 12 hours in studio art and 3 hours in art history.
A minor in either studio art or art history requires a minimum of 15 hours. Students may
major in one field and minor in another by earning a minimum of 39 hours in art, of which at least
24 hours must be in the major field and at least 12 hours in the minor field.
Honors. Qualified students in both the studio and art history areas may ask to participate in the
department's honors program. To be graduated with the designation "Honors in Art," students must
execute a written project or create a body of work; the results of their efforts must be presented and
defended before a committee of department faculty. Interested students should consult any member
of the department for additional information concerning the requirements for this program.
Students with a special interest in multimedia development may wish to consider a program of
study that combines digital art and computer science. Advisers in either the art or computer science
departments can provide further information on coordinating an art major with a computer science
minor, or vice versa.
The department accepts only three courses from a non-Wake Forest program for credit toward
the major. Of these three courses, only two may be in the same area of concentration as the major.
That is, an art history major may take up to two art history courses and one studio course; a studio
major may take up to two studio art courses and one art history course at a non-Wake Forest pro-
gram. All studio courses taken abroad are assigned ART 210.
Students enrolled at Wake Forest may not take courses in studio art or art history at other institu-
tions to satisfy divisional requirements.
