The Photography Program

The photography minor program at Saint Vincent College is designed to give students an understanding of photography along with the skills to take and edit professional photographs. Our photography classes give students hands-on opportunities to develop a professional portfolio of their work upon graduation.

The photography minor would complement majors in the Department of Visual Arts (especially Art Education and Studio Arts), as well as majors throughout the entire college, particularly those in communications, marketing, English (creative writing and professional writing) and physics.
