Science of Film, Photography, and Imaging immersion

The science of film, photography, and imaging immersion explores the basic science behind technologies used in film, photography, and other imaging applications. Introductions to human visual perception, color science, imaging physics, and imaging system engineering set a groundwork for common theories underlying all major imaging industries. This immersion also provides necessary prerequisites for completion of a minor in imaging science. 

Notes about this immersion:

  • The immersion is closed to students majoring in imaging science, motion picture science, and imaging and photographic technology.
