The Art track is part of the Ethics, Culture, and Society. Art is a timeless means of communicating human experience. Artistic, creative abilities help move our civilization forward. Students undertaking the art minor at Viterbo University learn what it means to recognize and create sound works of art, and to understand the art forms of cultures throughout history. The art minor provides students with meaningful opportunities to study and practice artistic methods, techniques, and media, embedded with intellectual inquiry and critical analysis. In this minor, students are mentored in their quest to answer relevant questions, like: How do I generate ideas and discern their strength? How do I turn my ideas into strong, original art forms? How do I craft them with my hands? How might I use art and my creative abilities to serve my community? Students majoring in all disciplines are encouraged to undertake an art minor to enhance their learning experience as they prepare for life beyond college. The minor consists of an 18-credit sequence of courses in studio art and art history. Students are required to take two Foundations courses, one course in art history, and nine credits in studio electives. Studio courses are offered in painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, photography, and graphic design.
Viterbo’s computer science program is 41 credits (internship pathway) or 47 credits (co-op pathway) of core coursework, consisting of computer science, mathematics, information systems, and management courses. In combination with core curriculum, the complete credit load for this program is 98-108 credits. Students will choose a concentration track outside of computer science to apply skills within that area (business, creative design, data science, engineering or mathematics), take part in team-based, industry-related projects embedded into their coursework, and have an internship or co-op experience.
The history track is part of Ethics, Culture, and Society. It prepares students with a wealth of world knowledge--both past and present. Encouraging curiosity and mindfulness of the events that shape civilization throughout world history defines the choice of this minor. History gives access to all areas of the globe, and the ability to connect ideas across cultures serves students well in their education and career. Studying history grants students a unique opportunity to supplement their skills in written and oral communication, while also learning to be informed citizens of the world.
