Photography

Instructor demonstrating wet-process developing

Photography is concerned with producing self-critical, creative artists and professional photographers capable of engaging in professional photography and contemporary art independently and self-reliantly, with an awareness of the variety of photographic productions and critical concerns. 

The program is dedicated to providing students with the skills, conceptual development, historical, technical knowledge and experience necessary to either enter a graduate program or further pursue a career as a photographer in the art milieu and/or professional areas. 

The department’s very broad and diverse curriculum covers subjects from historical to digital photo process and techniques within the context of contemporary aesthetic and cultural theories.
