AS: Photography

What can I do with an AS degree?

The Associates degree in Photography answers the need for a professional degree where a broad photographic skill set can be learned in a short period of time, while still preparing students for a viable place in the photographic industry.

Graduates can pursue entry-level roles in ad agencies, magazines, commercial studios, or newspapers. Positions may include: product photographer, portrait/wedding photographer, freelance photographer or graphic artist.

What Will I Study?

The two-year curriculum provides a solid technical and aesthetic foundation in photography.  Students work with instructors to develop an understanding of photographic design, while finding their creative voice. Students graduate with a professional portfolio that prepares them for entry in the photographic field.
