Imaging Arts


Students studying Imaging Arts learn to create dynamic images and have the opportunity to work in analog and digital environments. Students are encouraged and mentored to learn the foundations of the medium while refining their personal visual language as an expressive tool. Imaging Arts focuses on the combination of analog and digital strategies enabling students to gain experience with film, digital and alternative photographic processes. Students explore a variety of image-making processes through coursework in black and white, color, large format, studio lighting, non-silver, digital photography, and video. These experiences prepare students for a career in both commercial and fine art applications.

Professor of Art Brooke White heads the department.
