Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art - Photography

Photography Program

The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography prepares students to express themselves through photography by gaining a command of fundamental principles and practices. BFA students benefit from close observation and continual feedback from our faculty and are encouraged to find their own path through exploration as they develop their skills.


All students must complete the W.A.S.H. (Workshop in Art Studio and History) upon entering the Art Program and pass a BFA portfolio review in their sophomore year in order to continue in the BFA program.

Students in the Photography Program will take courses in digital photography, alternative photo processes, history of photography, and studio practices, among others.

The Art Department requires its students to own a Mac laptop with the current version of Adobe Creative Suite. This policy allows students to be as productive as possible without the confines of class schedules and lab hours. Financial aid and SHSU discounts are available to offset the cost.
