PhotographyThe Department of Art
The Photography Program is a fluid investigation into visual literacy focusing on the creative possibilities of lens-based imaging
Beginning with the introductory course, students create work that combines concept and technique with an awareness of contemporary art theory. Emphasis is placed on the student’s personal growth through aesthetic and intellectual development. This rigorous education in contemporary artistic and cultural practices, accompanied by classes in photographic history, enables students to develop a critical understanding of how photographic practices form and reflect our world.
The photography area welcomes an interdisciplinary approach to the medium and the possibilities of a content-driven incorporation of video, film, sound, performance, and installation. The incorporation of such parallel academic pursuits as literature, politics, psychology, and philosophy is encouraged.
