  • UWRF Series 64
  • collection
  • 1951-1983.

Prior to 1954 the University of Wisconsin – River Falls only offered an art minor designed primarily for Elementary Education Majors.

The Art major required 48 credits and Art Education totaled 60 hours. The coursework differentiation was primarily related to extra coursework in teaching art to public school-age students for the Art Education majors. In 1964 a Broad Area Art Education major was introduced for majors who preferred not to seek a minor but to strengthen their major. This course required 21 credits beyond the 60 for the Art Education majors. The Liberal Arts major, as it came to be known, remained at 48 credits. In 1969 a Broad Area Liberal Arts Program began. This degree required a minimum of 69 credits in art and was designed to give the non-education-orientated student a stronger base for professional or graduate directions in art.
