BACHELOR OF FINE ARTS

The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography at MassArt explores the medium as a fine art with an emphasis on personal vision, technical excellence, and experimentation.  In the sophomore year, students learn to use large format view cameras with black and white film.  Students achieve technical excellence in silver printing and begin to develop a personal vision.  In the junior year, digital capture and printing are introduced and students learn to "see" color.  In the senior year, the focus shifts to extended projects and portfolio development. Each semester, electives offer opportunities to explore specific themes or skills such as Landscape, Bookmaking, Alternative Processes, Studio Lighting, Documentary and Portraiture.
