Our Photography BFA features three areas of concentration:
• Commercial Studio Practices
• New Media Journalism
• Fine Art & Museum/Gallery Practices
Regardless of your specialization, all Photography students will have the opportunity to work with traditional darkroom practices and cutting-edge digital techniques. You’ll learn historical processes (cyanotype, silver nitrate, and more) as well as digital editing. Our darkrooms, digital lab, framing and matting room, photography studio, and more, are open to you as a Photography student.
The Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Photography program includes essential core photography courses in both studio and history. This degree permits students who have a strong interest in other subject areas to pursue multiple minors without extending their four-year college residency. Upon completing the BA program, students will possess a basic vocabulary and technical proficiency in using both analog and digital technologies.
This program includes the study of a variety of processes and genres of photography. Students who earn this degree will be conversant in the history of photography, its major artists and movements, and contemporary issues and ethics.
