B.A. in Art – Concentration in Photography

About the Program

The B.A. in Art with a Concentration in Photography provides a comprehensive look at the medium of photography and prepares students for a career in photography as well as the arts in general. The curriculum encourages cultivation of a distinctive visual narrative through the development of artistic and technical skills, as well as a broad understanding of the role photography plays in contemporary culture.

This concentration allows students to immerse themselves in a focused and intense study while refining and expanding on the skills integral to the discipline of photography, including historical contexts. In addition, the concentration offers insight to careers in both fine art and applied/design (commercial) photography. The curriculum includes both photography and design courses in order to best prepare you for the contemporary world of photography. It also includes studio electives, allowing you to incorporate the elements of photographic practices with other non-photographic media in an interdisciplinary approach to art making.
