Photography students practice in analog and digital media, and they explore a wide range of genres, methods, and techniques. Emphasis is placed on composition, creative personal exploration, conceptual innovation, and craft. Photography is appreciated equally for its uses in the fine arts, journalism, advertising, and design and for its place in the common vernaculars of popular culture. Students regularly practice critical thinking and writing skills related to photography in order to better understand its rhetorical power.
