Cinema and Photography Major — B.S.
Jack Bryant, Assistant Professor and Program Director
The bachelor of science (B.S.) program in cinema and photography (120 credits) has two concentrations -- cinema production, and still photography. Majors typically choose their concentration before registering for the first semester of their sophomore year. The bachelor of science program allows students to choose a significant number of elective courses and/or minors from the broad range of offerings at the college.
Entering majors must have their own light meters and digital SLR cameras. In addition, students must pay for laboratory services and purchase materials such as photographic film and paper, mounting board, motion picture film, videotapes, and digital storage media.
All majors must complete a minimum of 60 credits outside communications, and a minimum of 60 credits in courses designated as liberal arts (LA).
