In this minor, students with an interest in printmaking can develop their practice in one or more media by working with ideas and techniques drawn from their major or by treating printmaking as another area of practice. This minor provides a scaffolded
pathway for students to learn about visual culture, technologies, and craft through traditional and contemporary printmaking by making prints, experimenting with processes and ways of working, and discussing histories and contexts for printmaking
