This includes advanced techniques, professional practices, and theory. Special topic and elective courses are offered that engage with the expanded field of photography in New York City and provide portfolio-building opportunities. Students electing the Photography Concentration also take foundation Studio Art and Art History courses. Students choose 9 credits of coursework from a range of elective courses, 9 credits from among the 30000-level Photography courses*, plus the 3 credit Photography Portfolio capstone course.
