SCAD has one of the most comprehensive photography programs in the United States, offering a broad range of specialized courses and electives across digital, analog and historic photographic processes. Students develop fluency with a variety of camera systems, digital workflow, color and black-and-white technique, and both studio and location lighting.
Students are guided by faculty mentors in tailoring their course of study through elective coursework, independent study, internships, and/or extracurricular activities and student groups. At both the undergraduate and graduate levels, students work toward the goal of achieving a personal vision and a highly developed degree of visual literacy.
Equipment includes Macintosh computers, Adobe CS5 Master Collection, Imacon scanners, and wide-format inkjet printers.
