Photography is devoted to educating new artists in a contemporary world, where photographic imagery and new representations of media inform and define our everyday experiences. Photographs cross boundaries between culture, art, and individual personalities. Our program attempts to encourage development of the student through a range of courses from basic to advanced, historical to contemporary, analog to digital, and an array of critical concerns. Students grow through technical and creative allocations and various technologies that have redefined photographic imaging in the 21st century.

This studio concentration prepares students for graduate programs and studio entrepreneurship. This program is designed to bring the student to a high level of aesthetic theory, development process and technical skill in their focused studio area.
