At University of Colorado Denver students use Photography as a form of creative expression while expanding their knowledge of the medium as a critical dialogue in contemporary culture.


From the darkroom to the digital lab, Photography students from University of Colorado Denver build the technical and conceptual skills that are necessary to produce meaningful and provocative photographs. Discussions of the theoretical implications of the medium strengthen the ability to communicate ideas both visually and verbally.

Studio work is complemented by theory and history courses, as well as by instruction on how to promote oneself as an artist. Faculty focus on personal artistic expression, broad conceptual concerns, and nurturing the creative process. Although graduates have gone on to work in various professional environments, the program emphasizes fine arts photography.
