The Interdisciplinary minor is an 18-hour program.

In our ever changing global experience, Winthrop's Department of Fine Arts acknowledges the importance of developing and nurturing the engaged artist who can navigate the ideas and challenges of our time.

The interdisciplinary minor provides a solid foundation that combines video, installation, performance, and digital media with an emphasis on research-based modes of making. This interdisciplinary concentration addresses the fact that contemporary fine art practice is often located between or beyond traditional disciplines. Explorations are encouraged to be driven by concept, rather than medium.
