Why study Photography?

The Photography emphasis provides students with a thorough photographic education that encompasses both technical and conceptual pictorial concerns. Students establish a comprehensive understanding of the photographic medium through the study of analog and digital processes, while bolstering critical thinking and communication skills in a series of studio electives and required coursework.

Students in the photography program have completed internships at and found employment with:

  • Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana
  • Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science
  • Discovery Channel
  • Evansville Living Magazine
  • News4U Magazine
  • private photographers’ and artists’ studios

Our facilities include:

  • A newly renovated digital photography lab (Spring 2015) with a large format printer
  • A lighting studio with "hot" and strobe lights
  • A black and white film/chemical darkroom
  • Cameras and other equipment students can borrow for special projects

The Art and Design Department offers a major in art with a photography emphasis, as well as a minor in photography. The major culminates in a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree.

The Bachelor of Arts degree requires 12 semester hours in the same foreign language or demonstration of proficiency at that level of study.
