Take your shot

In the Photography Minor, students learn a variety of artistic and commercial techniques for producing images, including professional photo editing and manipulation and working with subjects. You will emerge from the program with a thorough knowledge of camera function and a collection of portfolio-ready images. The degree is suited to hobbyists, those interested in taking up photography as a business, and students who have never picked up a camera before.

Cameras are available for checkout; however, students are encouraged to acquire a camera for advanced courses
