The photography concentration within the studio arts program provides students with visual communications skills that are designed to strengthen the creative, technical, and conceptual abilities of photography students and all visual artists. The program offers a wide range of courses that address both critical analyses of photographic content and context as well as technical craft. Our facilities include a B&W darkroom, state-of-the-art digital labs with current Adobe software, and a studio equipped with strobe and hot lighting.

Fine art and commercial focuses are augmented by interdisciplinary opportunities with other humanities courses in English and History. Photo-based International Studies tours, residencies in the Poconos, and internships, both on and off campus, offer direct experiential learning not found in the studio or classroom.  Alumni of the program have gone on to graduate schools, and have become teachers in higher education, or free-lance photographers; some have opened their own studios and are active in fine arts gallery exhibitions.

For information about the Photography concentration, contact Prof. Allan Espiritu.
