The S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications oversees this minor.
The members of the Visual Communications Department know that life is enriched with the knowledge of how to make high-quality, meaningful images. The purpose of this minor is to provide photography and multimedia expertise to complement the student’s primary area of study.
This minor is intended for Syracuse University students who are not enrolled in the School of Public Communications. Photography is a valuable tool, of benefit to the architect, sociologist, biologist, forester, anthropologist, teacher, fashion designer, and students pursuing many other professions.
Applicants are admitted on a space-available basis depending upon cumulative GPA. To be eligible, a student must have completed 30 credits at Syracuse University in courses graded A-F, completed VIS 201 and VIS 207 , passed the Visual Communications Department’s portfolio review, and submitted an application to the Newhouse Undergraduate Advising and Records Office (316 Newhouse 3) by December 15 for spring admission or May 1 for fall admission. Students must declare the communications photography minor no later than the first semester of their junior year.
