The Photography specialization emphasizes an expressive and comprehensive approach to photographic image making. Students explore the medium's creative potential and place within contemporary art and culture through a diverse curriculum, while also developing technical competency and practical knowledge in a range of techniques. Courses cover the most current digital technologies, as well as traditional analogue and hybridized processes. Throughout the program, students are exposed to a variety of specialized topics such as studio lighting, analogue and digital printmaking, DSLR video, advanced digital image manipulation and bookmaking. During their final year of the specialization, students expand upon a personalized portfolio towards a senior exhibition, ultimately preparing for a graduate visual art program, a creative commercial field or a life in the arts.
