The photography minor complements many major areas of study and gives students a creative outlet for their passions. 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.

About the Program

Program Summary

The study of visual communications is important. Photography helps visualize complex ideas to better understand what is important to students and communicate in a different format than a written one. Through photography, students can express what they find beautiful, interesting, ugly, or inspiring to others.
