Working with a faculty of practicing professionals, students in the Photography program explore technical and aesthetic possibilities while developing their own creative vision. As students gain technical knowledge in the medium, they are also exposed to historical and contemporary photographers works as they begin to explore their own aesthetic and personal choices. This grounding in techniques, tools, and intellectual stimulation leads students to the freedom to create their own powerful, meaningful images.
The program goals of the Photography major are:
- To provide students with a solid foundation in photographic craft.
- To introduce students to traditional and technologically innovative practices within the field.
- To foster each student’s individual vision in the creation and capturing of photographic images.
- To enable the student to develop a portfolio of photographs and pursue further study.
