The photography program offers two sequences: Commercial & Advertising Photography and Editorial Photography & Photojournalism. Both sequences develop a strong working knowledge of video, as well as how to use light creatively, both on location and in studio. Collaboration with students from various programs across departments is highly encouraged. Students also study entrepreneurship, communications law and ethics, as well as develop communications writing and graphic design skills.
