Photography students learn the fundamentals of both fine art photography and commercial photography using all methods of production, including: traditional darkrooms, silver-based printing, digital color, large format and pinhole.
The study of visual communications is an important one. Photography helps us visualize complex ideas to better understand what is important to us and communicate in a different format than a written one. Through photography we share express what we find beautiful, interesting, ugly or inspiring with others.
Open to all students
On Hiram’s campus, performing and creating aren’t just reserved for students with a major in the arts. Non-majors also have opportunities to sing in the choir; showcase paintings, drawings, sculptures and photographs; play instruments in ensembles and act or design for theatre arts productions. Many of the College’s arts programs are designed to allow students of any discipline to double major, and the small class sizes mean that everyone gets an opportunity for one-on-one instruction with our experienced faculty.
A major/minor in the arts may be right for you if you enjoy:
- being creative and original
- critical thinking
- variety in your work
- nontraditional work hours
- examining history and different cultures
- sharing your work with an audience
- engaging your senses
