Photography and Media

The Photography and Media program offers a comprehensive curriculum that includes digital, video, lighting, history and even traditional darkroom classes. Our instructors encourage individual exploration founded on solid technical understanding and balancing craft with theory.

Students learn to use cameras and software to professional standards, develop critical thinking skills and explore careers. Our digital labs are equipped with professional computers, printers and applications, and our lighting and video classes are taught on professional and current gear.

Students are welcome to enroll part-time or full-time, in day or evening classes, whether for professional or personal enrichment or in pursuit of a Photography + Media A.A.S or Fine Arts A.A.A. with a Specialization in Photography.

No portfolio is required for admission.

Student work is showcased annually in the Photography and Media Student Show held in the Visual Art Gallery
