Second-Stage Writing Requirement

All students majoring in the Art and Art History department must successfully complete the second-stage writing requirement by completing a 300-level course, with a grade of C or better by the end of the junior year. Students who do not fulfill this requirement must consult with the department chair about available alternatives. This may mean enrolling in WRD 201 (passing with a C or better) or another ARTH course in the fall of the senior year.
