Apa yang akan saya pelajari?

Everyone has an opinion about a photograph. Anyone can take one. But the medium is deceptive. Behind photography’s mass appeal is a highly technical artistic discipline with distinct intellectual traditions.

Photography blends art and technology. When you study photography, you’re exposed to digital and film-based photographic practices. You’ll learn camera and darkroom techniques for colour and black-and-white prints, digital photography tools and printing skills. You’ll also take courses that give you:

  • An historical and theoretical understanding of the medium
  • Concepts and vocabulary to discuss photography critically
  • A social and aesthetic base to discuss photography's social and artistic impact
  • A broad understanding of how to construct contemporary images

You’ll leave us as a fine arts photographer, able to control the camera to express yourself, to produce a coherent body of work and to take your skills into many creative enterprises.


  • Major in Photography (60 credits)
  • Minor in Photography (30 credits) Minor may be suspended for 2015-2016

Photography is a discipline with a distinct artistic and historical identity. This program recognizes that contemporary photographic practice encompasses a rich diversity of formal and conceptual approaches.

As a Photography Major you will receive a strong historical and theoretical understanding of the medium. You will also acquire the concepts and vocabulary necessary for critical discussion of your own photographic work and the work of others. Emphasis is placed on photography's social and artistic ramifications.

Photography students have access to a full range of digital and analog outputs. Exposure to these techniques and technologies help to bring about a broader understanding of contemporary image construction and media specificity.

After your degree

You will graduate with the knowledge and discipline required for a creative and productive life.

  • Working as a practicing artist
  • Working in individual studio or community photo collectives
  • Editorial and curatorial work
  • Assisting established artists
  • Teaching
  • Graduate studies
  • Post-graduate education in a technical or related field.
