The Photography minor stresses a fine-art approach to photography. It provides the basics of black-and-white as well as color photography and digital imaging. The emphasis is placed on gaining experience in a wide range of pictorial photographic applications. Once a student has mastered basic photographic technique, materials and processes that are used to manipulate photographic imagery are explored. Creativity and personal expression are emphasized in all of these courses. Photography majors may not declare a Photography minor.
