Liberal Arts and Science: Photography Option

In today’s visual culture it is important to understand visual communication. The famous photographer Laszlo Moholy–Nagy said in 1934, “The illiterate of the future will be the person ignorant of the use of the camera as well as the pen.” The program emphasizes learning how to communicate ideas visually as well as learning the technical aspects of the medium. The program provides: all phases of camera operation; basic black and white darkroom techniques; studio experience; and experience with current digital imaging technology. The facilities include: a well-equipped darkroom with 18 enlargers that are able to print up to 4X5 negatives; a fully-equipped studio with both hot lights and flash equipment; medium format and large format cameras for student use. We also have a digital photography lab that includes the latest computers, image editing software, scanners and printers.   Apply & Register Program Details
