ART-490 Visual Studies Portfolio and Program Assessment

After completing fifteen credits of visual-studies courses, minors must enroll in the one-credit visual-studies portfolio course. Their portfolio will contain relevant materials such as exams, papers, and digital images of assignments, plus instructor comments. Students must include a 1000-1500-word essay describing the most important insights and skills developed during their course of study. The essay must also assess the strengths and weaknesses of the visual-studies minor. The portfolio will be graded Pass/Fail. Students should therefore take care from the time they begin the program to retain copies and images of work from courses comprising the visual-studies minor. This requirement applies to both the Humanities-and-Fine-Arts and the Social-Sciences PEAK minors.
