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.
