Photography Minor

Photography is everywhere you look: web pages, billboards, 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. Now that everyone carries a camera, we have witnessed news and events unfolding in ways that forever changed our society. In this minor, students will improve their photographic skills in a course of study that could ultimately lead to employment as working photographers.

The Photography minor is open to all Wilmington University students. In this minor, students will create a path of study suited to their desires by selecting any five courses from the following list, preferably starting with TEC 215. Students who are normally required to include TEC 215 for their major will, when electing a Photography minor, select four additional TEC courses from those listed below.
