Digital Art and Photography Minor

This minor offers students the opportunity to supplement their major field of study with a rigorous investigation of digital art and photography. The program will provide a rich academic environment that will foster creativity and spur innovative thinking. The three required courses provide students with a deep understanding of the production of visual language in video, photography, and other time-based methods. From this dynamic foundation, they will choose a line of study to more thoroughly investigate advanced photography techniques, interactive art, or 2D/3D animation in a fine arts context.
