Carson-Newman offers the 4-year BA Degree in either Art or Photography. This separate major in Photography is a distinctive aspect of our Art Department. All Photography majors take a common core of fundamental Art & Photography courses, and then choose from several more specialized courses at the upper levels. 

Learning outcomes

As a student moves through our Art - Photography program at Carson-Newman University, he or she is allowed increasing freedom at the upper levels to explore personalized experiments and goals of subject matter, aesthetics, content, and materials of image-making. Graduates of our program enjoy professional artistic success in a variety of ways, including working as freelance commercial photographers, staff photographers for large firms, studio and gallery managers, and other rewarding careers. Many of our graduates have also gone on to earn more advanced degrees beyond the BA level. Our specialty is the personalized attention given to each student by our professional, friendly, and committed Art faculty.

The Department of Art strives to support and accomplish the overall mission and vision of Carson-Newman University, as a dynamic, vital and visible academic department on campus. All of our students are counseled toward a broad education in the liberal arts, to strive to create students who think critically and creatively and are knowledgeable about a wide range of disciplines.
