Art Minor

Temple University students have the option of exploring the visual arts by choosing to take a minor in Art. The Art Minor is available on both the Main Campus of Temple University and at the Temple University Japan Campus. 

While the studio courses within the minor are generally found listed under the Art department, Main Campus students may also take courses open to all Temple students from the Graphic Arts and Design, Crafts, and Painting/Drawing/Sculpture departments to help fulfill elective credits.   

The Main Campus Faculty Advisor for the Art Minor is Professor Kim Strommen - kim.strommen@temple.edu

The Temple University Japan Faculty Advisor for the Art Minor is Professor Shinya Watanabe - shinyaw@tuj.temple.edu.
