Major and Minor Requirements
The goal of the Photocommunications program is to prepare students for a successful transition to the job market and to be competitive for admission to top tier graduate programs. The learning environment within the department extends outside the classroom and lab. We emphasize visual literacy and professional training, which is unique among the photographic education programs nationally. Students begin their education working with traditional imaging and master film-based photography in the wet darkroom before proceeding to digital imaging.
While completing the basics for both film-based and digital photography, students also focus on a variety of courses included in the Photocommunications electives which strengthen thier preparation for life and careers after graduation. Photocommunications electives vary by semester and have included such topics as: Installation Strategies, Urban Visions, Exploring Contemporary Photography and Photo Flatness History/Practice.
