Creating a language with a lens and vision
As a digital native, you have grown up in the time of the image, with camera phones producing better photos and more sophisticated editing options. So much so that everyone is calling themselves a photographer. But you know there is more to the art of photography than the quality of the equipment.
At Susquehanna University, you will learn both about art and the technical aspects of lighting, directing and editing photography. You will have 24/7 access to computer labs with the most up-to-date technology, editing software and printers. The digital photography classroom is equipped with high-end professional studio lighting, seamless cloth and paper backgrounds, and dedicated lecture, critique and production spaces, everything you need to create and execute your vision.
Photography is a form of communication, and it is a language that each photographer creates for themselves. By studying photography in Susquehanna University’s liberal arts setting, you can combine your artistic vision and cultural aesthetic with your academic interests ranging from ecology to social justice to history to anthropology. Or, you could merge your photographic interests with journalism, creative writing or graphic design, just to name a few majors that would create a robust professional portfolio as you enter the creative job market. Additionally, before you graduate, you and your fellow photographers will mount a public exhibition of your work in The Lore Degenstein Gallery, where you will gain experience in a professional gallery with museum standards.
