Admissions: Programs of Study


Whether working as an applied or fine artist, the successful photographer is one who can find the most appropriate blend of a developed aesthetic and the science and technology of image-making to produce a legible personal statement. The Photography Program at Marywood offers a strong foundation in the technical skills required of the photographer. Traditional media are stressed, while developments in digital imaging are embraced. Fluency in the medium is enriched and expanded by the study of aesthetics and art/photographic history, as well as through class discussions and critiques, which emphasize the development of the voice of the individual as artist. The relationship of photography to other disciplines, such as illustration and graphic design, is explored in projects involving both areas of study. Marywood’s flexible program is designed to meet the individual needs of the aspiring photographic professional.
