Conservation Photography is a course cross-listed by both the CIS and Environmental Studies programs. The goal of Conservation Photography focuses on telling stories with pictures regarding the relationships humans have with nature. Students in the Conservation Photography course will examine the science behind local and global environmental issues. Students will also learn the basic skills of photography, post-processing, digital image manipulation, as well as image interpretation and analysis. Course content will center on conservation, yet the skills learned and practiced in this course can easily be applied to other disciplines. The content is multidisciplinary and emphasizes the interconnection of art, science, technology, and the humanities.
There are no prerequisites for CIS/EVS 171. This course is offered at remote locations during May.
