Advising Notes:

Please Read: This major guide is a list of all possible major courses offered in the Virginia Community College System. Not all courses may be offered at your community college, and you are not required to complete all these courses in order to transfer. Rather, itís designed to help you meet JMU major requirements before you transfer, and be better prepared to progress through the major once you arrive at JMU. Please be sure to read the advising notes for additional information on the major.

1. Art History does not require a portfolio review in order to declare the major.
2. Students must apply for admission to the Museum Studies concentration. To be eligible to apply for admission, students must have a cumulative 3.30 GPA within a minimum of 9 credits in art history (ARTH) and General Education art history (GARTH) courses. The program will consider grades from any new transfer student who has earned JMU approved credit for an art history course taken at another institution provided the student submits a transcript.
3. Students are strongly encouraged to begin their foreign language at the community college.
