PHOTOGRAPHY

DEGREE OVERVIEW

The Paier College Photography program recognizes the unique and elegant blend of science and art which has evolved into one of the most influential media of communication on the planet. As a fine art that works directly from reality and is, therefore, grounded in truth, it is an extremely potent and evocative means of self-expression. As the preferred means of telling visual news stories, it has long been the primary force in documenting global events, and, in some cases, even shaping world history. As the medium of choice for product advertising, it accounts for billions of dollars of consumer trade, annually. And now, with the advent of digital photography, the creative power and control of the individual photographer is almost unlimited. This program has been carefully designed to accurately mirror the dynamic merger of traditional and digital imaging which is currently evolving in the field. The BFA program offers the student a unique experience that covers both fine art and commercial photography. Students will be given the opportunity to acquire skills that enable them to choose from many different photo career directions which are currently evolving in the field.

Beyond core curriculum and elective coursework, students are exposed to classes in Photojournalism, Photo Science, Photo Digital Imaging, Digital Media, Product Photography, Digital Techniques, Multimedia Design, and more.
