Fine Arts Minor

The minor in Fine Arts is intended to deepen an appreciation for and encourage a lifelong engagement in the fine arts, including painting, sculpture, photography, music, film, drama, and creative writing.  As participation in fine arts courses, both in practice and in theory, stimulates creative thinking and develops problem solving skills that are applicable to other areas of study, this minor is meant to round out The Citadel experience.  Students are also encouraged to engage with the broader artistic community of Charleston through participation in events, internships, exhibitions, and performances.

Through the foundation courses in art and music, the student will gain a broad understanding of the cultural and historical significance of the fine arts as well as applied knowledge of a variety of artistic mediums.  Further courses will develop the student’s interest in more specific areas, such as musical performance, emphasis on a particular visual medium, or internships in local arts organizations.
