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.

  • 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:
