Photography Concentration

Students in this concentration have access to one of the finest photographic facilities in New England. Our students work with professional equipment as early as their first year. Students learn through hands-on experience with equipment ranging from the traditional darkroom to the latest digital technologies, which include professional digital cameras, imaging software, and archival inkjet printers.

The spacious, professionally-equipped commercial studios are the ideal environment in which to learn and create. There are multiple digital-imaging classrooms and labs, along with a substantial inventory of professional cameras and studio-lighting equipment available for off-site use.
