Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in this Columbia College Chicago Catalog; however, the Catalog is not a contract but rather a guide for the convenience of students. Columbia College Chicago reserves the right to change or withdraw courses; to change the fees, rules, and calendar for admission, registration, instruction, and graduation; and to change any of its policies or other provisions listed in the Catalog at any time.
Designed for majors and non-majors alike, this course exposes students to a broad range of photography as it is currently being exhibited in Chicago. On alternating weeks students attend a variety of venues that demonstrate the commercial, fine art, photojournalistic and scientific uses of the medium. Class sessions are also spent discussing these exhibitions in relation to texts used in class. Students will respond to visits and assigned readings via weekly written responses.
