The minor in art photography extends the opportunity to learn the foundations of traditional and digital photography, while exploring the creative potentials of the medium.

All minor students are trained to use a wide array of camera formats while learning both darkroom and digital processes. Students with a strong personnel vision are invited to participate in seminar classes along with our majors. These courses provide an intense critique environment terminating in the production of a professional-level portfolio. Students more interested in the historical, theoretical, and non-traditional perspectives of photography may choose from a menu of electives. Image making has a prominent role in book, installation, conceptual, and performance art - our courses reflect the multifaceted nature of contemporary photography.


Students interested in this minor should meet with the faculty contact. Prospective students must submit a current transcript and portfolio. Acceptance into the minor will be made solely by the faculty contact for the minor upon review of application materials. You need to maintain a 3.0 GPA average in the minor curriculum; otherwise, you may be expelled from the minor. The minor is limited to 15 students.
