Photography and film

Degree requirements

The advanced study of photography and film is both broad and varied. Therefore, the program’s requirements are flexible and determined by the needs of each student on an individual basis. There are, however, a few definite requirements. On completion of the program, each student must have knowledge of contemporary art history, a more in-depth knowledge of the history of his or her discipline and an understanding of the critical dialogue that is connected with his or her medium. Courses are suggested for students to meet these requirements, based on their background.
