The Photography program at the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia has a deep commitment to analog and digital technologies, and intersections of the two.


About this Degree

The study of Photography at the University of Georgia spans the history of the medium from large format cameras and historic printing processes to the latest in digital technology, mixed media, and installation. The highly selective program typically has approximately forty undergraduate students and seven to nine graduate students generating innovative new work within the medium.

The small size of the Photography program, with just fifteen students per class, creates a close-knit community. It fosters a supportive environment for experimental work derived from a student'­s goals and personal inspiration. Each course provides not only the technical tools of the photographic medium but also the conceptual discussions and applications to put those tools into use. One-on-one attention is present at all levels to support students in their development as working artists.
