This program is available at the following location:
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 minoring in Journalism, or majoring in Digital Communication Arts or the Design fields, giving students additional hands-on experiential learning opportunities.
