The Photography program offers highly specialized training in the context of a broader liberal arts education. We focus heavily on photographic technique, critical theory, and portfolio development. Our curriculum provides the training and practice necessary to begin a career in photography or to gain admittance into top graduate programs in the arts.

Our students benefit from faculty who actively exhibit and publish their work. We work in collaboration with the Photographic Center Northwest, a non-profit community arts center where students have the opportunity to learn from internationally recognized photographers.

Photography students may pursue an emphasis in documentary photography that includes courses in Documentary Survey, Documentary Methodology and Documentary Stills and Video.

Degrees offered: Photography BFA, Interdisciplinary Arts with a photography emphasis BA
