BFA Art: Photography

Technical expertise in photography is only one aspect of this emphasis.

Students also must learn to use their technical expertise for creative expression. They are expected to explore the relationship between meaningful content and technical competence in their work.

Alternatives to standard photographic procedures such as image transfers, photo-enhanced bookmaking, digital manipulation and non-silver processes are encouraged. Photography study trip destinations have included Rhode Island, Yellowstone National Park, New Mexico and Ireland.

Students pursuing a BFA with an emphasis in Photography are required to complete 15 credit hours in art history, 64 credit hours in studio courses and three credit hours writing a BFA thesis.

Advanced standing in the BFA program normally is granted after a student submits an application and has his/her work reviewed by the faculty. This process takes places one year prior to graduation.

If you plan on majoring in art, dance, music, or theatre, you must complete a portfolio review or audition as part of your application to Webster.
