BFA CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY
The Creative Photography program looks at the photographic medium in a contemporary and progressive context and as a means of self-expression as well as an important tool for the artist. Because photography and all optically-generated media are in a state of flux and redefinition, faculty encourage students to explore the potential of images and their relationship to historical, cultural, social, theoretical and aesthetic concerns within the visual arts and humanities.
The department is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design and offers M.F.A., B.F.A. and B.A. degrees.
The curriculum in Creative Photography follows a chronological sequence from the lower division foundation experience, through 35mm black and white, color, non-silver and digital imaging courses and advances into expanded practices such as large scale murals, video, installation performance, sound and web-based work.
The faculties represent a range of experience and aesthetic attitudes and are committed to their own rigorous studio practice.
