Photography  Minor

Print Version Print
College of Liberal Arts|School of Arts and Communication

The Photography minor creates an opportunity for non-Photography majors to study and practice photography, digital imaging and collaborative digital arts practices. Through the study of a diverse range of photographic genres and techniques, students actively practice photography, develop critical-thinking skills, study the histories of photography and key photographic practitioners, have the option to experience other time-based media genres, and further their photography skills by creating professional-level projects.

The role of photography to improve creative thinking skills is invaluable for students studying in other fields where the role of creativity as an aspect of inventiveness and independent project generation is encouraged. Furthermore, a photography minor is an ideal companion to students majoring in the design fields or in Digital Communication Arts students in these areas already share several courses in common with art/photography students.

To qualify as a Photography minor, students must declare the minor when filing the application for graduation, and must have 27 credits in photography and art history, at least 12 of which must be upper division. For further information, please contact the academic advisor.
