About the Art Minor
The art program at Upper Iowa University challenges students to develop a personal approach to the arts while they strengthen their artistic skills and explore career opportunities. Creativity and independence are cornerstones of a program where faculty members actively lead, motivate, and support students in their education, personal lives, and careers.
The combination of personal expression, professional guidance, and the stimulating natural environment of our Northeastern Iowa location contribute to a unique atmosphere of interaction and collaboration where students and their ideas can flourish.
The Art minor pairs well with the following majors:
- Graphic Design
- Psychology for a pre-professional track into graduate school for Art Therapy

How do minors work at UIU?
Choosing a minor field of study is optional. A minimum of 15 semester hours of separate identifiable semester credits must be earned for each minor that is declared. The same course may not be used in a major and a minor or among multiple minors unless the course is a required course (not part of a “select” area) in both the major and the minor or among multiple minors.
Convenient, Focused Scheduling
UIU students have the advantage of focusing on fewer classes at once with the Two-at-a-Time schedule.
