For the Degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography
The curriculum in photography requires 122 credit hours; its purpose is to encourage the study of photographic media for personal expression, to explore the social implications of pictures, and to develop the skills needed for careers in photography. General art requirements and electives provide a broad foundation in the visual arts, and photography courses provide a strong background in the history, theory, and practice of photography as art.
