Photography and Intermedia supports students interested in working across media boundaries to create unique interfaces for public engagement. Graduate students concentrate on contemporary photographic practices and explore media associated with photography such as video, sound, performance and installation. They embark on interdisciplinary research that may lie outside any traditionally defined art media. In a creative and supportive environment, pursuit of the Master of Fine Art degree in Visual Arts with an emphasis in Photography and Intermedia advances image-based artists who want to explore new arenas of art making.
Graduate students work with Herron’s outstanding faculty, facilities and equipment to gain an in-depth understanding of professional studio practices. The emphasis is on individual development of creative vision, along with exploration of professional opportunities such as university teaching, interdisciplinary collaboration and community-based, site-specific initiatives. Graduate students at Herron master practical strategies for making art as well as an understanding of the theoretical issues, historical influences and the cultural forces at play in a 21st century urban context.
