Photography BFA

Photography requires technical and visual skills that provide the ability to communicate through images. A command of fundamental principles and practices prepares students to solve the challenges of expressing themselves through photography. In the BFA Photography program, students work under close observation with continual feedback, and are encouraged to explore, take risks, find their own path, and develop their skills. In both our facilities and faculty, we strive to support such positive grown and exploration.
