Photography and Intermedia

In the photography and intermedia program, we strive to produce artists who will become innovators. Our students develop their artistic visions from an intensive examination of the histories, theories and practices. Students have the opportunity to explore lens based media in all of its forms, including digital media, video and contemporary visual inquiry. The program encompasses all future trajectories in photography and related practices—electronic media, installation and performance, questions of dissemination and audience, the creation of alternative venues and site-specific installation. Students learn the skills and develop the insight necessary to create work high in technical proficiency and imbued with theoretical understanding. Upon graduation successful students possess a solid understanding of visual culture and the ability to place their own work within a socio-historical context.
