Photography is everywhere you look: magazines, web pages, billboards, birthday cards, textbooks, etc. Images are used to transmit ideas and emotions, to persuade consumers, to influence voters, to make you hungry. Photographs inspire nostalgia, capture history, and they allow people to experience worlds they would otherwise never know. In this minor, students will improve their photographic skills in a course of study that could ultimately lead to employment as working photographers.
