Department of Art

SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Art
Justification: The Art Department has had a minimum grade of “C- “ for all courses required for the undergraduate major in Studio Art (from the CSUS Catalog: “Courses applied to the major must be completed with a grade of ‘C-‘ or higher”). There has been no minimum grade in any of the courses applied towards the Department’s three minors. The Art faculty have agreed to: (1) raise the minimum grade in courses required for the major from “C- “ to “C”; (2) require a minimum grade of “C” in all courses used towards the minors in Art Education, Art History, and Art Studio.
Note: The new Art History concentration already requires a minimum grade of “C” in all courses applied towards the concentration.
