The declaration process for the art history major and minors is simple and straightforward. Contact Peter Harle, our undergraduate advisor, at or 612-625-2379 to schedule an appointment (the process takes about 30 minutes). He will discuss the major or minor requirements with you, consult with you about particular courses, and enter the appropriate information into your online record. The department does not require students to complete any particular courses before they declare.

If you have any special interests or goals related to art history, be sure to let our advisor know, as this will help him to suggest courses and other experiences that could work well for you.
