Photography Curriculum Overview

A minor in photography allows students the opportunity to focus specifically on artistic and professional photographic practices. Through coursework, students learn traditional camera and darkroom techniques and contemporary digital workflows. Aesthetics, critical analysis and the history of photography are also part of the curriculum – taught in the classroom and through visits to local galleries and photography studios. An internship, connecting students to the local professional community, is also required. By pursuing the minor, students will gain the breadth of experience needed to develop their own personal photographic vision.

An academic minor normally consists of 20 to 24 credits taken in courses in one area or related areas of study prescribed by the faculty.
