The Doctoral Minor in the Transdisciplinary Study of Visual Cultures is research-driven. Selection of courses should contribute to the development of your primary area of specialization. The minor is awarded upon successful completion of 9 graduate-level credits in a combination of required and elective coursework, with a GPA of 3.0 (4.0 basis). Required coursework consists of ART HIST/AFROAMER 801 Historiography, Theory and Methods in Visual Culture; ART HIST/AFROAMER 802 Visual Cultures: Topics in Visual Cultures, or equivalent. Elective coursework consists of one 3-credit course to be selected, in consultation with a program faculty advisor, from a wide range of crosslisted and “meets with” courses offered by program faculty in numerous programs and departments. A list of possible course options are available on the CVC website, although it is not exhaustive. Please, note that even if a course is listed on the website it is not a guarantee that it will receive program credit. Please, consult with Director of the CVC to ensure that your selected courses meet criteria for credit.
