Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA)

A two-semester course in photography introduces the student to the proper use of the camera, basic darkroom techniques for developing black-and-white photography, and an overview of the history and aesthetics of photography.

Intermediate courses refine darkroom techniques and introduce special concerns, including color photography, color processing, the fabricated photograph, and other aesthetic issues. Special-topics courses in lighting and large-format photography are available.

At the advanced level, students work on independent projects dealing with such issues as the narrative format, technical experimentation, light as a visual phenomenon, and the like.
