Photography is everywhere and is in a period of unprecedented change, with constantly evolving technological advancements and multimedia possibilities that are redefining what it means to be a professional photographer. Our Photography and Imaging students immerse themselves in a curriculum that enables them to explore the unlimited creative possibilities that exist today for capturing, producing, and sharing innovative and meaningful work.
We build on the photographic tradition and thoroughly investigate the future possibilities of both the still and moving image while encouraging our students to develop an individual voice and perspective with their work that will set them apart from the casual observers of life. Our graduates are fully prepared to be young professionals, ready to participate in and help define this exciting new era of photography.
