We look forward to safely returning to in-person instruction and activities this autumn quarter. Current and prospective students please visit our COVID-19 Updates pages.


A total of 30 credits are required to complete a minor in Art History. There are no specific course requirements for this minor, however, a minimum of 15 credits must be Upper Division courses (300-level or above). In addition, at least 15 credits must be completed in residence at the University of Washington (non-transfer courses).

Declaring the Minor

Any undergraduate student with at least junior standing (90 credits completed) may declare a minor, even a student who has not yet declared a major. There are no departmental admission requirements for the minor. See the academic adviser in your major to add an Art History minor.
