Photo 1Photo 2The Photography program offers a broad spectrum of historically informed course work to provide a rigorous and supportive environment to prepare aspiring photographers for the ever evolving world of contemporary photographic practices. Such a broad-based program allows students to investigate all aspects of the medium and garner the essential technical skills necessary to establish their own personal voices. After seven core classes ranging from traditional darkroom, to advanced digital, to readings in photography, each student participates in a two-semester thesis capstone. During these two final courses students generate a professional caliber body of work culminating in a portfolio and exhibition. With an emphasis on individual artistic development, visual literacy, and critical inquiry, our program prepares well-informed, thoughtful, and highly skilled graduates for careers as artists, arts professionals, and/or continued studies at the graduate level.
