developing an understanding of various conceptual approaches to the medium

Photography

The undergraduate photography program focuses on developing students' understanding of various conceptual approaches to the medium and strong technical skills in both traditional and innovative methods of production. Students learn the verbal and critical thinking skills necessary to participate in contemporary discourse of the field and investigate various methodologies in the development of significant portfolios of work.

Students study advanced techniques in digital imaging and printing, black & white darkroom processes, large-format view camera photography, video, and studio lighting.

A History of Photography course is offered yearly by the Art History department. Field trips and an extensive visiting artist/photographer lecture series broaden the learning environment and expose students to a variety of viewpoints.
