Art History Minor


There is a minor in Art History offered at Pitt-Johnstown. In order for a student to qualify for a minor in Art History, they must complete 18-credit hours in Fine Arts courses, with a minimum 2.0 QPA overall for those courses.


Students must take the following two classes:


  • FA 0015 History of Western Art 1 (3 credits)
  • FA 0016 History of Western Art 2 (3 credits)


These two courses give a strong, broad overview of the history of art, and naturally lead to further exploration in more detailed surveys of individual periods and movements.


Four other courses (12 credits total) in Fine Arts must be selected from any other course offerings, including (but not limited to):


  • FA 0150 Ancient Art             
  • FA 0050 Medieval Art                                              
  • FA 0304 Renaissance Art      
  • FA 0351 Baroque Art
  • FA 0521 Nineteenth Century American Painting     
  • FA 0031 Modern Art
  • FA 0491 Contemporary Art
  • FA 0621 Art of China
