As digital technology continues to blur the line between films, periodicals, television, and photographs, students are constantly challenged to define and reexamine the photographer's role in contemporary art practices.
To earn the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography, students begin with historical and traditional forms and progress to color processes with a concentrated examination of contemporary still and moving digital media. Herron students come to understand the roles photography played in culture throughout the past, and its current position as an art form. Technical proficiency, personal growth, and conceptual and aesthetic development get equal emphasis.
