Visual Literacy Minor

The Visual Literacy minor focuses on an interdisciplinary approach to studying photographic and video arts, photojournalism and documentary film. Students take courses within the Art and Integrated Media departments at Gonzaga. The minor gives students models for thinking critically about the interpretation and impact of images in society and artistic creation, and the evolving role of video in online news and social media. The curriculum integrates experiential learning with the theories and ethics of artistic and journalistic visual creation.
