STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) Minor


Department of Art and Art History, College of Fine and Performing Arts

23-25 credits

Introduction

The STEAM minor adds the Arts to the traditional STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) framework in order to facilitate an understanding of the interrelationship between STEM fields and Art. Integrating visual experience with scientific processes can: provide students with the means to explore visual expression through technology, demonstrate the relationship between STEM concepts and the Arts and exemplify how the arts can enhance scientific understanding through processes such as visualization and creative problem solving.
