The Minor in Photography allows undergraduate students throughout the university to enhance their education with both creative and intellectual engagement in a studio discipline: Photography. The Minor in Photography also affords opportunity for students in more general visual/creative degree programs in the College of the Arts to augment their degrees with additional studies in image making. The Minor in Photography is open to students in all majors except BFA Option in Photography.
Declaring the Minor in Photography
The minor must be successfully declared in order to register for upper division courses. Students must meet with a School of Art Advisor to determine if the minor can be completed within timely graduation units. Students must also meet minimum GPA requirements (3.0 GPA in their declared major, 2.0 GPA overall), and have completed ART 241 with 3.0 or better.
Alternative admission requirements may apply during times when the School of Art is impacted.
For School of Art Majors pursuing a minor offered by the School of Art, some units may be double-counted toward both the major and the minor; however, 9 units of coursework must be unique to the minor, and cannot be double-counted for the major.
Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher in courses required for the minor in order to graduate with the minor.
