Alumni Success

“There's a lot of lighting techniques I learned in my photography classes that I still use ... Webster really gave me a space to just have the freedom to think more creatively.”

Hands-On Education

The students are taught through a hands-on approach that encourages the capability to work in a variety of photographic fields and technical environments. They graduate with a solid foundation in the aesthetic and the communicative aspects of the medium. Class sizes are small to ensure maximum access to needed equipment.

Students ultimately concentrate in one area of application, such as photojournalism or commercial/studio photography, making Webster the only university in the area that offers an applied photography degree. Upon graduation, students will be prepared to seek employment with a newspaper, portrait studio or commercial studio; to establish their own freelance operation; or, to move into further specific training such as forensic photography.
