Fine Arts Minor

The Fine Arts minor provides an interdisciplinary approach to creative human expression for students interested in the artistic performance, process, and inquiry. Students have flexibility in designing their course of study within the minor, and may choose to acquire either an in-depth understanding of a particular performance or process art, such as music or theater, or a broader, critical awareness of the visual and performing arts.

Students pursuing the Fine Arts minor are also encouraged to develop a portfolio documenting their creative activities at AUBG. This personal archive will generally consist of written programs, lists of repertoire studied and performed, samples of creative work, and other evidence of creative achievements, including participation in public performances and/or exhibitions, as part of study toward the minor.
