Coursework outside of Studio Art:
Minor coursework must carry an upper-division number, that is, 320-379. Suggested out of department contacts & departments: https://sites.utexas.edu/artgrads/art-history/art-history-advising/out-of-department-courses/.
Masters students are required to take minor (supporting) coursework outside of Studio. If any course listed in the Course Schedule does not show as “open,” it has been restricted by that department. Most departments restrict their graduate courses and you will likely need the consent of the instructor to register. Often, the Graduate Coordinator in that department will register you for the course once consent of the instructor has been received. If you have consent and are requesting registration from a Graduate Coordinator by email, always include:
- Name, UT EID, the number and title of the course, 5-digit unique number for the course.
- If you have previously received consent from the instructor by email, paste the consent information into the email.
