The visual image is ubiquitous in American culture. One cannot venture far without seeing photographs used in news, entertainment, advertising, sports and other applications. Photography also has played a key role in shaping our collective memory of watershed events. Photography is communication. Photography is art. The Photography Minor is intended for students who want to pursue the study of photography beyond the introductory course. Students who revel in creative image-making and want to use the camera as an expressive tool would find value in the photography minor at St. Scholastica.
